Correction. Fortunately Salzburg has a nice history section on their site. Popp was 
the Erster Knabe in the Flute that year and, instead of Nozzi, she sang Artemis in 
Gluck's Iphigenie in Aulis at the Felsenreitenschule. That is where I remembered 
looking again at the program. Here is the cast: 
Karl Böhm, Conductor
Günther Rennert, Stage director
Lucia Popp, Artemis
Walter Berry, Agamemnon
Inge Borkh, Klytämnestra
Christa Ludwig, Iphigénie
James King, Achilles
Otto Edelmann, Kalchas
