Today's Programme

Salzburg Festival Summer
19 July - 31 August 2024

The Salzburg Festival Opening Party on 19/20 and 26 July

“When the theatre becomes transparent, the stars are part of the festival.” This sentence by festival founder Hugo von Hofmannsthal, whose 150th birthday is being celebrated this year, stands above the festival for the 2024 festival opening: “We are opening the theatre doors and inviting everyone to take part in our programme. 76 programme items in 32 venues over three days will take place this year.”

Dr Kristina Hammer, Markus Hinterhäuser, Lukas Crepaz, Board of Directors of the Salzburg Festival

“The central theme of this year’s festival is crossing borders. Johann Sebastian Bach’s music meets the latest sound systems, string ensembles meet pop and loops, the group Neuschnee meets summer temperatures. It is precisely the numerous playful possibilities that make the opening event of the Salzburg Festival so appealing. Many thanks to all participants, cooperation partners and of course the entire Festival team, without whom none of this would be possible,” says organiser Dr Renate Stelzl.
