Salzburg Festival

With the world-renowned play "Every man"

A special summer highlight for culture fans

The Salzburg Festival is one of the most significant global events in art and cultural circles. Even in the Middle Ages Salzburg was known for its love of theatre and fancy-dress parties. Thanks to the unique city backdrop and the many great men and women who have promoted art and pressed ahead with innovative ideas and stagings, Salzburg today is one of the capitals of culture. Every year in July and August, after months of preparation as part of the ‚Salzburg Festival‘, a wide variety of performances and concerts are held.

Every year as part of the Salzburg Festival, the history of „Everyman“ by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, is staged. The story is about a rich nobleman, whose foremost focus was on his own well-being and in increasing his assets. ‚Everyman‘ shows little mercy for debtors and the poor. Everyman only saw reason about his misdemeanour when death literally emerges behind him and urged him to prepare himself for his final walk.

Even anyone who already knows the story, is mesmerised time and again by the transformation of Everyman during the play. Hugo von Hofmannsthal penned an appealing yet also a contemplative piece, which has an important message to impart in every era.

Let it wash over you

Enjoy the artistic presentations which are at their best in our beautiful state capital in July and August.
