10 Years of Grafenegg – First-class music in a unique setting!
World stars of classical music take to the stage of the extraordinary, sculpture-like Wolkenturm amphitheatre. Situated in the Wachau, one of Austria’s most beautiful regions, and located on the stunning grounds of Castle Grafenegg, the unique location offers a special concert experience for music and architecture fans alike, making this festival one of the most spectacular classical concert destinations worldwide.
Grafenegg is celebrating its 10th birthday. Past, present and future come together in the Midsummer Night’s Gala jubilee. Having won over the audience at the very first Gala with his deeply resonant voice, Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel is joined in 2016 by the young Russian coloratura soprano Olga Peretyatko. Pianist and Artistic Director of Grafenegg, Rudolf Buchbinder, joins the celebrations at the piano.
As is tradition, this atmospheric evening concludes with a fireworks display accompanied by Edward Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance”.
