A brilliant opening last night in Salzburg with “West Side Stor.”  starring Cecilia Bartoli and conducted by Gustavo Dudamel with the Simon Boliva Orchestra.  A once in a lifetime experience.

 

The audience was on their feet at the end of the show which I’ve  been told is extremely unusual for the premier audience.

 

A very nice review in the Salzburg paper today.  Looking forward to returning in August for the summer festival.
