jung & jede*r

The youth programme of the Salzburg Festival

The Salzburg Festival’s children’s and youth programme is set to launch a fireworks of ideas for the next generation during the extended centenary celebrations in 2021, sending a strong message. The idea of the Festival as a work of peace is reflected in all the diverse contributions.

The jung&jede*r programme transforms the entire state of Salzburg into a stage from May 2021 onwards. The Salzburg Festival travels “from Abtenau to Zell am See”, presenting six mobile productions for children and teenagers aged 6 and up, in cooperation with local cultural associations and presenters.

Students will experience the performances either in their own classroom, at a cultural centre near them, or on stage at the Salzburg Museum. There they can be combined with a visit to the State Exhibition Great World Theatre – 100 Years Salzburg Festival and an intense course of study entitled A Stage ABC. Interested classes of all school types are also invited to take part in participative projects, developing their own peace projects inspired by the mobile productions and working with experts, artists and pedagogues.

Featuring 62 performances at 30 venues between May and August 2021, almost 1,000 actively participating students from 54 classrooms and also successful formats such as the Opera Camps, the Salzburger Festspiele und Theater Kinderchor, youth subscriptions and, in the field of young professionals, the Young Singers Project and the Herbert von Karajan Young Conductors Award, the Salzburg Festival offers new spaces for artistic and social interaction, encouraging young people to shape the coming decades.
