Yuja Wang
Yuia Wang is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating concert pianists of our time, combining technical precision, exhilarating virtuosity and energetic stage presence with seeming ease. Born in Beijing in 1987, Wang moved to Canada with her family at the age of 14 to study at the Mount Royal Conservatory in Calgary. In 2002, she moved to Philadelphia to study at the Curtis Institute of Music under Gary Graffman. The pianist launched her international career in 2007 when she stepped in for Martha Argerich - a year before she finished her studies. Since then, Yuia Wang has been an extremely welcome guest on all the world’s great stages, and her repertoire includes major piano concertos with orchestra as well as intimate soloist recitals and chamber music. She has worked with maestros such as Gustavo Dudamel, Andris Nelsons, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Franz Welser-Möst. Her close chamber music partners include Leonidas Kavakos (violin), Gautier Capuçon (cello) and Matthias Goerne (bass-baritone). The pianist is under contract with Deutsche Grammophon.

Aida - G. Verdi
Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) wrote his “Aida” at a politically highly explosive time: Germany and France were on the brink of war (Franco-Prussian War 1870/71), which is why the premiere could not take place until a year later after the scheduled date: Because both the stage sets and the costumes were stuck in the Prussian occupied Paris. The opera had been commissioned by the Egyptian Viceroy Ismail Pasha. However, not, as often wrongly assumed, for the inauguration of the Suez Canal, but for the opening of the new opera house in Cairo in 1871. Aida shows the versatility of this exceptional Italian composer in its entirety: large-scale mass scenes and choruses are juxtaposed with equally intimate, chamber-play-like scenes that reveal a soul drama that is ingenious in every detail. In this respect, the work can certainly be interpreted as a turning point in Verdi’s oeuvre, as it not only focuses on the vocal parts, but also assigns a new and leading role to the orchestra. Verdi received the 150,000 gold francs demanded for his composition, probably the highest honorarium granted to a composer to date. In addition, he demanded his own trumpets for the famous Triumphal March, the so-called Aida trumpets, which had to be commissioned as a special production. Today "Aida" is one of the most successful of the great operas of the 19th century.

Elena Stikhina
Soprano Elena Stikhina (*1986) is one of the outstanding young artists of our time and has already caused an international sensation in her field: after winning the prestigious Operalia Singing Competition in 2016 – an award that in the past has already been the career springboard for many glorious artists of our times – performances at the Opéra de Paris, the Deutsche Oper Berlin as well as the Staatsoper Unter den Linden and the Dresden Semperoper soon followed. In the 2018/2019 season, Stikhina made her successful debuts in the U.S., both at New York’s Metropolitan Opera, where she gave the title role in Giacomo Puccini’s ´Suor Angelica`, and as ´Tosca` at Boston Lyric Opera. In the summer of 2019, the Russian-born singer gave her much acclaimed premiere at the Salzburg Festival with the role of Medee – standing in for Sonya Yoncheva. With this, at the latest, Stikhina is about to establish herself from an outstanding young artist to one of the future big stars in the musical sky.

Piotr Beczala
Born in 1966 in Czechowice-Dziedzice, Poland, tenor Piotr Beczała’s elegant, yet powerful vocal delivery has thrilled audiences on opera and concert stages around the world. His engagements have taken the opera singer to all the major houses, including Berlin, Munich, Milan, New York, Salzburg, Vienna and Zurich. In the summer of 2018, after only a few weeks of rehearsals, Beczała made his acclaimed debut on the Green Hill at the Bayreuth Festival, where he took over at short notice for Roberto Alagna in the role of Lohengrin. Beczała’s extensive repertoire continues to include the title roles in the operas Werther, Roméo et Juliette, Faust and Les Contes d’Hoffmanns, as well as the roles of Il Duca di Mantova (Rigoletto), Rodolfo (La bohème), Sir Edgardo di Ravenswood (Lucia di Lammermoor), Lenski (Eugene Onegin), Tamino (The Magic Flute), Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni) and Alfredo (La traviata). Beczała is one of the leading tenors of our time, performing alongside renowned top orchestras, conductors and notable stage partners, including Placido Domingo, Sir Elliott Gardiner, Fabio Luisi, Riccardo Muti, Christian Thielemann, Diana Damrau as well as Anna Netrebko.

Erwin Schrott
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1972, bass-baritone Erwin Schrott is one of the leading Mozart interpreters of our time. In 1998 he won the singing competition "Operalia" and began his international stage career. His leading roles include Don Giovanni, Figaro and Leporello (Don Giovanni) - with which he made his celebrated debut at the Salzburg Summer Festival in 2008. His other repertoire includes the role of Escamillo (Carmen), Dulcamara (L’Elisir d’amore), Procida (Les Vêpres siciliennes), Banquo (Macbeth), Méphistophélès (Faust) and the title role of Attila. In addition to opera productions, Schrott also performs in concert. His performance at Berlin’s Waldbühne in summer 2012 together with (his then partner) Anna Netrebko and Jonas Kaufmann caused quite a stir and was broadcast live in 20 countries. Further engagements have taken Schrott to many of the great houses of our time, including the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Vienna State Opera or the London Royal Opera House at Covent Garden or the Bavarian State Opera.
