A welcome by
Nikolaus Bachler

Nikolaus Bachler, the Artistic Director of the Salzburg Easter Festival, welcomes you to the 2023 Salzburg Easter Festival.

»Träume« - a World Premiere by Emanuel Gat


With »Träume«, French/Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat will present a work for 14 dancers that is inspired by Richard Wagner’s »Wesendonck Lieder«. (Pictures by Julia Gat)

Gat will combine the five famous poems with excerpts from Wagner’s essay »Art and Revolution« [»Die Kunst und die Revolution«

»In the first act, excerpts from his revolutionary essay will be juxtaposed with the poems by Mathilde Wesendonck in order to create a kind of textual score in a dialogue between the sexes...

»... it is followed by a second act that unfolds to the music of the five songs«, says Emanuel Gat.
