THE BAROQUE style of the Great Hungarian Empire will be revived on July 3 in Austria’s Schlosshof Palace when the opera “Il Parnaso Confuso” by Christoph Willibald Gluck will be staged at this venue.

Gluck composed this opera on the occasion of the wedding of Archduke Joseph (later Emperor Joseph II) to Maria Josepha of Bavaria. The opera, directed and staged by Josef Wallnig and Reinhold Kubik, will enchant audiences on the evening of July 3 in an environment very similar to where the opera premiered, striving to replicate the original Baroque spirit as much as possible.

Schlosshof Palace is close to the Slovak-Austrian border, located between Hainburg and Marchegg, 28 kilometres from Bratislava.
