Styriarte 2022 - June 24 to July 24
Setting off, discovering the unknown, packing your bags: Who doesn't love to travel? A change of scenery lifts the spirits and so the Styriarte 2022 has a lot of good vibes in its luggage.
First stop: the island of Naxos. A holiday destination of the first order. Arianna", an Opera rarity by the great Styrian Baroque composer Johann Joseph Fux, will be performed there. Impressively staged and part of a party in the courtyard and park of Eggenberg Palace, a World Heritage Site.
Next stop: the White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang. Summer freshness and satire can be found in Sandy Lopicic's new version of this cheeky revue, in which even Emperor Franz Joseph can be funny.
But the Styriarte does not conceal the fact that travel is by no means only educational or exhilarating, but in times of "overtourism" and "flight shame" has its downsides, and focuses on the bicycle. In a world tour by bike, destinations like Buenos Aires or New York can be reached in a healthy and environmentally friendly way on the saddle.
The finale will be exotic. Jordi Savall, world star and world traveller, tells the story of Ibn Battuta, a Muslim scholar and his journey from Africa to China. Great musical cinema with images from the far Middle Ages.
