100 years of the Salzburg Festival

Speeches about the century

From the beginning, the Salzburg Festival had an extraordinary mission: to create meaning in times of crisis. The Festival’s 2021 programme will again feature lectures about the century, devoted to exploring the question of whether the belief in the power of the arts — of which our founding fathers were convinced — still endows the Festival with meaning in our changed times. In doing so, the lectures will invoke the world of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The Speeches about the century 2020-2021 are now available as stream. Please note that the streams are available in German only.
