Cast Change in Concert for Salzburg

Peter Kooij had to cancel his participation in the 2018 Salzburg Easter Festival. This has made necessary a cast change in the Concert for Salzburg: Krešimir Stražanac, who was scheduled to sing the role of Jesus, will take over the Bass part from Peter Kooij. For the role of Jesus we were able to engage baritone Günter Haumer who is an ensemble member at the Vienna Volksoper since 2012. The cast list is now as follows:

Johannes-Passion BWV 245

Maximilian Schmitt Evangelist
Günter Haumer Jesus
Dorothee Mields Sopran
Damien Guillon Altus
Robin Tritschler Tenor
Krešimir Stražanac Bass
Collegium Vocale Gent
Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden
Philippe Herreweghe Dirigent
