" In celebration of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's 250th birthday in 2006, the internationally renowned Salzburg Festival presented all 22 of the composer's operas and other major compositions throughout the course of its summer schedule. Joining the festivities, GREAT PERFORMANCES travels to Salzburg in all its picturesque splendor for a gala concert with the Vienna Philharmonic from the stage of the Felsenreitschule (the former "Summer Riding School" immortalized as the location for the final Von Trapp Family concert in THE SOUND OF MUSIC). Featuring some of Mozart's most memorable music from "Cos? fan tutte," "Don Giovanni," and other classic works, the concert will include performances from several leading young stars in opera, including Magdalena Kozen?, Patricia Petibon, Anna Netrebko, Rene Pape, Michael Schade, Ekaterina Siurina, and Thomas Hampson. The concert was conducted by the 29-year-old Daniel Harding, who has received international acclaim for his work at Covent Garden, La Scala, and other esteemed venues."
