Is there a more glamorous opening than opening with the festival’s own Dresden Festival Orchestra under Ivor Bolton’s baton? Together with Dresden-born singer René Pape the orchestra will dive deeply into romantic souls in songs by Franz Schubert. Preceeding is Carl Maria von Weber’s overture to his opera “Euryanthe”, which during his lifetime had no easy lot: the music was greatly praised, the libretto however was laughed at. The spring-like first symphony by Robert Schumann was drafted in only four days and written out in three weeks – in a blissful stage of his life shortly after his marriage to Clara Wieck.
