Salzburg Festival

Mozart here, “Sound of Music” there, Salzburg is above all the “Festival City”. Every summer, the Salzburg Festival transforms Salzburg into one giant stage.

It’s a music festival that embraces the great composers and authors of the last centuries. You can roughly pide the performances into three areas.


Opera: The brilliant performances at the Large Festival Hall are riddled with stars of the scene. Not just Mozart operas, but also Italian composers as well as modern pieces are performed here.

Drama: “Everyman” is the Festival’s main pillar and is accompanied by Austrian authors such as Thomas Bernhardt, also born in Salzburg (main focus in 2016) and international names such as Shakespeare and Samuel Beckett.

Concert: Solo recitals, chamber concerts, matinées and orchestral concerts. Classical music forms the largest part of the Festival. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the best orchestras on the world stage. There is also a constant stream of many other great names playing at the many venues around the city.

This opera in four acts written by Dmitri Schostakowitsch premiered in 1934. It is the story of Katerina Ismailowa, who is unhappily married to the rich merchant Sinowi. She gets involved with the servant Sergej. Her father-in-law catches them in the act and Katerina kills him with rats poison. And kills her husband, too. During the wedding of Katerina and Sergej, they are arrested and sentenced to forced labor. While Katerina is true to Sergej, he flirts with another woman. Consequently, Katerina kills her rival and commits suicide.
