Castell Classics

A tradition and a highlight on Mallorca ‘s summer 

Opera Events

As long as since the opening of “Castell Son Claret” in 2013 bringing the most talented soloists from Salzburg Festival’s Young Singers Project to the island for the first time the Castell Classics have become a tradition and a highlight on Mallorca ‘s summer events calendar for classical music aficionados and culinary lovers alike. I am also happy to say that Castell Classics will return in 2021, reaching new heights with a star-filled program reflecting our continuous collaboration with the finest European music festivals and world-renowned artists. We will begin the 2021 Castell Classics series on the 2nd of June, when welcoming Teatro Maggio Fiorentino for their debut season at Trui Teatre. On 7th July, the president of the Salzburg Festival, Dr. Helga Rabl-Stadler, will present a select group of classical music’s future stars from the Young Singers Project as they perform their only concert outside of Salzburg this year. We will conclude our musical journey on the 11th August with an exclusive concert by young artists from The Hamburg State Opera, accompanied by musicians from the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands.

Our Commitment


Our commitment to classical music and support of the local community is stronger than ever and I am delighted to share with you that Castell Son Claret has become the principal sponsor of the acclaimed Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands for the next 15 years. I am very pleased that can now offer our guests exclusive access to many performances and the opportunity to meet some of the top artists of the classical music world. In 2023, the opening of ‘La Caixa De Musica’, the future home of the Symphony Orchestra and Palma´s new and modern concert hall, will add a further dimension to our collaboration, as it brings with it the opportunity for many more musical moments for us all. The Kühne-Stiftung, a foundation established by the owners of Castell Son Claret, proudly supports this project and the many festivals we all have the opportunity to benefit from.


Castell Classics 2021

Each evening’s musical program will be accompanied by a welcome reception and gala menu presented by our virtuoso culinary team from Restaurant Olivera. The events start at 19.30h in our front gardens.



Teatro Maggio Fiorentino


2nd June 2021

This event takes place at Trui Teatre.

In close cooperation between the “Castell Son Claret”, the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the Symphony Orchestra of the orchestra of the Balearic Islands, a joint event will take place in the Castell de Bellver in Palma de Mallorca. The well-known opera director Alexander Pereira, who has been working in Florence for the past year, will accompany singers with an entertaining programme that will focus on popular Italian arias.

Italy’s first music festival, the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, was founded in 1933 with the aim of presenting contemporary and forgotten operas in visually dramatic productions. The festival takes place annually between April and June in the new opera house of the Teatro dell’Opera di Firenze, which opened in 2011.
Tickets for the June event will be sold directly via the homepage of the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands

Salzburg Festival


7th July 2021

This event takes place at Castell Son Claret.

The parting president of the Salzburg Festival, Dr. Helga Rabl-Stadler, will bring a group of the best soloists from the Festival’s Young Singers Project to perform their only concert this year outside Salzburg at Castell Son Claret. The Salzburg Festival is the largest and most important annual event in classical music.

Founded in 2008, the Young Singers Project is a world-class platform for young classical singers, setting the benchmark for the next generation. Selected through auditions, young singers follow a curriculum that doesn’t only include musical education and repertoire expansion, but also staged rehearsals and performances to an international audience at the Salzburg Summer Festival.

Hamburg State Opera


11th August 2021

This event takes place at Castell Son Claret.

Hamburg State Opera’s reputation for artistic creativity has developed over centuries and Castell Son Claret is very proud to have the opportunity to host a selection of most talented voices of the Opera Studio. The singers will offer a varied program with a summer-themed score, supported by

musicians from the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands. This will be the grand finale of this year´s Castell Classics and will celebrate the hotel´s new partnership with this important local partner. The Hamburg State Opera was founded over three centuries ago in 1678 following a public vote. With a wealth of art-loving citizens, Hamburg rapidly became the leading musical centre of the German Baroque, a reputation the city retains to this day with the recent completion of the world’s most modern concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie.
