Artistic Director Nikolaus Bachler presents a particularly diverse programme for the Salzburg Easter Festival 2025 - for the first time in the festival's history, four conductors and three orchestras will be featured. At the center is a new production of Modest Mussorgsky's monumental drama »Khovanshchina«, staged by British theater maker Simon McBurney. Esa-Pekka Salonen will conduct staged opera for the first time in 6 years and will be at the helm of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
