Claudio and Andrei


October 6, 1991: Performance to celebrate the opening of the Andrei Tarkovsky Festival in Vienna


This Vienna production is the identical to the one at Covent Garden in 1982. Under the enthusiastic initiative of Maestro Claudio Abbado, the Festival was composed of Tarkovsky's films, exhibitions, concerts, poetry readings, and symposia, in addition to the opera production. It was the Maestro's farewell to Vienna's music lovers, for he had already decided to leave the post of Music Director at the Vienna State Opera.
