All The World On Stage

One of the world's great arts festivals, the Edinburgh International Festival fills the Scottish capital with the finest classical music, opera, theatre and dance for three weeks at the end of every summer. With the many other festivals (the Military Tattoo, Fringe, Film, Jazz and Book), it makes Edinburgh the world's most exciting festival city during August.

The International Festival started off Edinburgh's annual arts frenzy in 1947, bringing all that was best in the performing arts to the "Athens of the North." Ever since then, the world's greatest theatre companies, opera and ballet companies, orchestras and classical artists have made the pilgrimage to the city built beneath the volcanic outcrop known as Arthur's Seat.

After 2004's focus on Weber, there is a return to Wagner following 2002's Parsifal and 2003's Scottish Opera Ring Cycle, with Christine Brewer in Tristan und Isolde accompanied by resident orchestra for the third week, the Bamburg Symphoniker under young British conductor Jonathan Nott.

The first week includes performances by Vladimir Fedoseyev and his Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow Radio, while the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester are in town for the second week. Conductors making welcome returns from recent festivals include Herbert Blomstedt, Ingo Metzmacher and Donald Runnicles as well as baroque experts, Emmanuel Haïm and Rinaldo Alessandrini, while no Edinburgh Festival would be conceiveable without Sir Charles Mackerras - and he appears both in the first and third weeks. Czech conductor Jirí Belohlávek also visits.

Soloists of note include singers Violeta Urmana, Jennifer Larmore, Matthias Goerne, Magdalena Kožená and Ian Bostridge, pianists Llŷr Williams, Stephen Hough and Lars Vogt, organist Thomas Trotter, cellist Ralph Krishbaum, violinist Christian Teztlaff and the Michaelangelo Quartet, offering an insight to some of the popular Queen's Hall recitals.

Opera includes Britten's Curlew River, Rossini's Adelaide de Borgogna and André Messager's L'Amour masqué.

On stage are Spanish company La Cubana, while choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and Noh Theatre feature in the first week. J M Synge, author of Playboy of the Western World is also mentioned for the third week.
