Elisabeth Breuer


The Austrian soprano received her training at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz and took the world’s big stages by storm. Whether in Mozart’s “Il Re Pastore” in Venice, in Lehár’s “The Merry Widow” in Wiesbaden, or as an interpreter of the works of Bach, Handel, or Haydn - the Austrian is a sought-after star of classical music.

Maria Ladurner


Excellent stylistics and a brightly shining vocal sound are the qualities with which Maria Ladurner has rushed from success to success in the baroque and classical repertoire. In addition to guest appearances at numerous European houses, she also made her Styriarte debut in 2020 at the Festival opening with the leading role in J. J. Fux's "Gifts of the Night".

Florian Birsak


The Salzburg native is one of the most respected specialists in historically informed performance practice on the fortepiano and harpsichord. His outstanding basso continuo playing makes him a sought-after continuo partner for numerous top orchestras, and he also shines as a stylistically confident soloist and chamber musician in baroque and classical music.

Palais Attems Hofkapelle


The small instrumental ensemble was created especially for productions of the Styriarte at Palais Attems in Graz. In the manner of the court bands of stately houses, the ensemble, which is assembled from the ranks of the Orchestra Recreation, plays courtly chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Matthias Ohner


The self-made actor and trained social worker worked for years on theatre education projects to prevent violence. The multi-talent plays with the conventions of theatre and reinvents it. As Gregor Samsa in Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” he celebrated a big success at the Graz Schauspielhaus.


a journey through the eras of Baroque and Rococo

In Palais Attems there are heroes everywhere: they are painted all over the walls and ceilings. In Graz’s most magnificent Baroque residence, groups of audience members embark on a journey through the eras of Baroque and Rococo: the legendary King Arthur in the music of Henry Purcell; strong 18th-century women in Mozart’s heavenly songs. In the courtyard, those who financed the magnificent building have their say – the farmers with their homely music. A magical trip through the illusory world of Baroque.
