Hardly known works by great masters of music history or musical languages neglected on European opera stages have been given a platform at the donauFESTWOCHEN since 1995 – in the 30th season Joseph Haydn’s Die wüste Insel (The desert Island): a gripping plot based on motifs from Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, dramatic, orchestral accompagnati for the recitatives, seven stirring arias and a wonderful quartet for the finale.

Now this operatic jewel with the L’Orfeo Barockorchester is coming to the stage of Greinburg Castle for the festival’s anniversary.

A donauFESTWOCHEN im Strudengau 2024 production.
