The Hungarian National Philharmonic will be conducted by their music director, Zsolt Hamar. The title role of the oratorio will be sung by Brigitta Kele, who made her debut at Cluj-Napoca's Romanian National Opera, regularly performs in Düsseldorf, Paris, Avignon, and Strasbourg, and was featured in the last season in the New York Metropolitan's production of La bohème.
Albert Pesendorfer is one of today's most sought-after Wagner singers, who regularly performs King Marke, Hans Sachs, Hagen and Gurnemanz. Louis will be sung by Johannes Kammler. The young German baritone won the second prize at the 2017 Neue Stimmen, an international competition, which earned him a number of performance opportunities. One of these is a concert performance of Gottfried von Einem's opera, The Trial, a highly anticipated production of the Salzburg Festival this summer.
