Schlossfestspiele Ludwigsburg




The retelling of the Old Testament Flood and the salvation of biodiversity through Noah’s Ark in Michelangelo Falvetti’s oratorio »Il diluvio universale« brims with imagination and gripping drama. Together with the scenic-musical lament »Les Adieux« by violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and the musical representation of the parable »The Giving Tree« by the Rothko String Quartet, the works form a thematic unity with which the Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele deliberately focuses on the acute problem of climate change and the issue of sustainability. »Anyone who was not present at this performance missed out on great things. The audience was already rising from their seats when the applause had just begun.« (Sandra Bildmann, Bietigheimer Zeitung).

If you missed the performance of »Il diluvio universale« on May 26,2022, which was celebrated in the reviews, or if you simply want to experience the oratorio again, you now have the opportunity on our Digital Stage. The ARTE recording used for this purpose was made on September 11, 2010 at the Festival d’Ambronay under the direction of Leonardo García Alarcón.
