OMV and Gazprom: Project sponsors of grand Russian opera at the Salzburg Festival
The Salzburg Festival celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2020. It was founded in 1920 by poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal, theater and film director Max Reinhardt, composer Richard Strauss, head of the Wiener Staatsoper Franz Schalk, and set designer Alfred Roller. Because, as Hofmannsthal writes, “Salzburg is the heart of the heart of Europe”, and because the founders hoped to heal the wounds of WWI through art and culture. It has grown into a genuine success story in terms of both artistic expression and economics.
In the jubilee year, the Salzburg Festival presents some special pieces and productions. One of the special anniversary productions is the big Russian opera "Boris Godunov", which will be jointly made possible by the two project sponsors OMV and Gazprom and celebrates its premiere on 20 August 2020 in the Great Festival Hall.
“If the Salzburg Festival has a reputation for being the best in the world, then that is also thanks to the many Russian artists who grace our stage every year. As early as 1921, the first members of what was then the Imperial Russian Ballet came from St. Petersburg and captured the hearts of the international guests and foreign and Austrian media. That’s why we see the partnership between the Festival, OMV and Gazprom as an exceptionally welcome and appropriate anniversary gift”, said Helga Rabl-Stadler, President of the Salzburger Festspiele.
OMV is partner of the Leopold Museum
The Leopold Museum is one of the most popular museums in Vienna. OMV is a partner of the museum with important works by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Richard Gerstl, Alfred Kubin and many others.
The cooperation with the Leopold Museum enables international guests, partners and employees to experience one of the most important collections of modern Austrian art of the 19th century and modernity exclusively.
In 2019 OMV is supporting the special exhibition "Oskar Kokoschka - Expressionist, Migrant, European". The exciting and impressive exhibition will be on shown from April 6th until July 8th 2019 at the museum.
OMV is partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus
OMV is a longstanding partner of the Wiener Konzerthaus and the proud sponsor of the 2019/20 season opening with Teodor Currentzis and musicAeterna. Additionally this year, the OMV again supports the cycle “Vorhören” and the concerts “Im Klang”.
For the opening of the season Teodor Currentzis and his ensemble musicAeterna present Mozart's Da Ponte trilogy in half-staged performances at the Wiener Konzerthaus. The solemn beginning - with "revolutionary spirit" and "profound spirituality" - makes Le nozze di Figaro, followed only two days later by the "dangerous mystery drama" Don Giovanni. The end of the Triassic, Così fan tutte, shows that people of flesh and blood and from all social ranks govern Mozart's stage.
The cycle “Vorhören” is highly recommended for families with children. The first part of the concert takes children on a discovery tour through the Wiener Konzerthaus. Special features and puzzles are explored creatively in age-appropriate introductions to the works. In the second part of the concert, parents and children come together and listen to the music parts, that were explained to the children before.
“Im Klang” gives the audience an exceptional music experience. For this concert the members of the Vienna Symphonic are spread out far apart from each other on the ground floor of the Großer Saal, with the concertgoers taking up their seats in between the musicians. This puts the audience in the mid of the sound, allowing them to experience the orchestra closer than ever before.
OMV is a partner of the Austrian National Library
Ludwig van Beethoven: His name stands for a musical oeuvre that today enchants people worldwide. For the 250th birthday of the great composer in 2020, the Austrian National Library will present the special exhibition: “Beethoven. World of the Man and Spark of the Gods”. The exhibition will be open to public by December 19, 2019 – supported by OMV.
Beethoven's encounters with his contemporaries, teachers, musicians and patrons, with women and friends, but also with his family represent his "World of the Man". The exhibition shows this based on numerous original letters from the holdings of the Austrian National Library. Beethoven's original manuscripts of works that are still a big part of the classical canon today, such as the Violin Concerto op. 61, the "Spring Sonata" op. 24 or the String Quartet op. 95 from the holdings of the Austrian National Library, stand for the "Spark of the Gods" of his oeuvre.
OMV has been a partner of the Austrian National Library for several years and has supported this Austrian cultural institution in the past with various exhibitions, as a book sponsor, and with developing the literature museum.
For the first time in 2019, OMV was Platinum Partner of the innovative 4GameChangers Festival - the international digital festival. The festival took place for the fourth time from Tuesday, April 9 to Thursday, April 11 2019 in the Marxhalle in Vienna.
