Claus Guth

Stage director Claus Guth is one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed artists of his generation. Born in Frankfurt, he completed his studies in Munich before directing a series of productions in Munich, Mannheim and Hamburg that quickly garnered international attention. His international breakthrough came in 1999, when he directed the world premiere of Luciano Berio’s Cronaca del Luogo at the Salzburg Festival. Claus Guth returned to Salzburg the following year for a production of Gluck’s Iphigenie en Tauride and has been a frequent guest at the festival since, with acclaimed productions of Mozart’s Zaide and the Da Ponte trilogy to his name, which has travelled to various houses in both Europe and America.
