188 PERFORMANCES IN 44 DAYS

“Salzburg is the heart of the heart of Europe. It lies at the centre between South and North, between mountains and plains, between Switzerland and the Slavic countries”, said the famous Austrian poet and Festival founder Hugo von Hofmannsthal. The Salzburg Festival was founded in 1920 by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Max Reinhardt and Richard Strauss as a peace project following World War I. Now the Salzburg Festival is going into its 95th season and its magnetic impact is greater than ever. It has often been called the greatest and most important festival in the world.
