Discover the programme for the 2022 Salzburg Easter Festival! It will be the first edition of the Easter Festival since 2019 that will take place as usual at Eastertime – from Saturday 9 April to Monday 18 April 2022.

Richard Wagner and his Lohengrinwill be at the heart of the 2022 Festival – a work whose only other production at the Easter Festival was first given back in 1976. Christian Thielemann conducts. 

The Herbert von Karajan Prize will in 2022 be awarded to the Staatskapelle Dresden – an orchestra rich in tradition whose musicians will naturally once again be performing as the orchestra in residence at the Easter Festival. The two Orchestral Concerts will be conducted by Tugan Sokhiev and Christian Thielemann. 

Christian Thielemann will also be conducting the Choral Concert, which in 2022 will be dedicated exclusively to the music of Anton Bruckner. The Bavarian Radio Chorus will once again be our guest in Salzburg for this concert; the soloists will be Camilla Nylund, Elena Zhidkova, Saimir Pirgu and Franz-Josef Selig.

The popular Concert for Salzburg will be conducted by the First Guest Conductor of the Staatskapelle, Myung-Whun Chung from South Korea. 2022 sees the 125th anniversary of the death of Johannes Brahms, and the Concert for Salzburg will feature his Fourth Symphony.
