Taxi Dancers at the 3. Salzburg Festival Ball

22 AUG 2014

I enjoy taxi dancing because one is always in good company and is doing both the ladies and the gentlemen who are not as keen on dancing a favour – thus the motivation of the former professional ballroom dancer Stefan L. to travel from Vienna to Salzburg’s Festival Ball and act as a taxi dancer. He is one of 10 so-called taxi dancers of all ages who will be waiting at the taxi dancers’ booth inside the Felsenreitschule ballroom to be “borrowed” by dance-loving ladies for two to three dances. Not all the taxi dancers are professionals, but all of them have a gold-star command of the standard ballroom dances, and they look forward to leading you onto the dance floor on August 30 at the Salzburg Festival Ball at the Felsenreitschule!

The Theatre Programme 2014 Reflected World War I

1 SEP 2014

published in: Drama, General

One hundred years after the outbreak of World War I, commemoration was indicated by the history of the Festival’s founding itself. In 1917, Max Reinhardt wrote in his founding manifesto: “Art, especially theatrical art, has not only held its own during the ravages of this war, but it has proven that its existence and maintenance are among the most indispensable necessities.” Sven-Eric Bechtolf’s drama programme was devoted almost entirely to the outbreak of the First World War, 100 years ago.

The 94th edition of the Salzburg Festival began with a highly atmospheric, sold-out Ouverture spirituelle. The overwhelming rendition of the Vespro della Beata Vergine by John Eliot Gardiner at the Cathedral and the concert featuring Mozart’s final symphonies with Nikolaus Harnoncourt were early highlights of an immensely successful Festival season which attracted more than 270,000 guests.

The 2015 Concert Programme

6 NOV 2014

published in: Concert, General

Designing a concert programme is like weaving. Like a textile’s warp, there are given constants that create structure. In our case, these are the traditional series featuring the Vienna Philharmonic, the series of guest orchestras, Salzburg’s Mozarteum Orchestra, the Salzburg Camerata, great soloists and song recitalists of our times, intriguing chamber music formations and the most interesting performers of New Music – every year, we weave all of these into new patterns with other weft threads. Many of these threads take their origin in the Ouverture spirituelle and give rise to other series in their own right.

We invite our young friends to discover the Salzburg Festival as THE place where everyone can join in! On the one hand, we wish to awaken our young audience to the world of theatre, of opera and classical music – a world full of adventure, imagination and sound, where magical moments wait to be experienced. On the other hand, we also wish to actively support young artists. The Salzburg Festival is an accelerator and launch-pad for artistic careers, but also offers the space and time for very different artist characters to unfold gradually.
