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 Eliott 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 Theatre Programme 2014 Reflected World War I

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.

Taxi Dancers at the 3. Salzburg Festival Ball

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!
