Martin Turba

Haushofmeister (Ariadne auf Naxos)

After studying tourism administration and philosophy, and Latin languages in Salzburg and Lisbon, Martin C. Turba's passion for theatre and music led him to the Schubertiade in Vorarlberg, one of the most prestigious chamber music festivals in Europe, where he became the associate director. In 2000 and 2015, he was chosen by the Austrian government to create the Austrian cultural programme for the Universal Exhibits of Hanover and Milan. He directed the Bad Ischl Festival from 1999 to 2004 and the Schönbrunn Palace Theatre from 2004 to 2010. Since 2004, he has also taught at the Graz University of Music and Theatre and has led a wonderful career as an actor playing roles like the butler in Ariadne auf Naxos at the Opéra Royal de Wallonie, the Opéra de Bordeaux and the Opéra de Toulon.
