The Summer Night Gala has been ushering in the summer festival season since 2006. World-class soloists will once again celebrate the start of summer in front of a packed audience: while cellist Gautier Capuçon has already won the hearts of Grafenegg audiences on several occasions, Asmik Grigorian, one of today's most exciting sopranos, will make her Wolkenturm debut. The American Eric Cutler is also one of the most sought-after dramatic tenors and will sing for the first time at the Grafenegg Gala. The musical summer fairy tale will be conducted by the chief conductor of the Tonkünstler Orchestra, Yutaka Sado. ORF culture presenter Teresa Vogl will accompany the guests through the evening.
