As this year's Salzburg Whitsun Festival kicks off, the first under Cecilia Bartoli's artistic leadership, the details of next year's programme have been revealed.
The theme is Sacrifice. Or should that be Controversy? The centrepiece is Norma, with Bartoli in the title role. Read the programme to find out why she thinks Norma is really a mezzo.
Leiser and Caurier direct and a new critical edition of the score has been produced, reinstating old cuts and implementing some of Bellini's annotations.
More controversy - La Ceci will also perform in Brahms' Deutsches Requiem alongside Rene Pape and Daniel Barenboim's West Eastern Divan Orchestra.
To round off the weekend, Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky perform an all-Stravinsky programme, and Andras Schiff gives a recital.
