what’s playing now
The Salzburg Festival was inaugurated on August 22, 1920, when Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s morality play Jedermann was premiered on the Domplatz, directed by Max Reinhardt. Since that time, the Salzburg Festival has established itself as the most important festival for opera, drama, and concerts. Located in the picturesque town of Salzburg, Austri – the birthplace of Mozart – the festival offers concerts with the Vienna Philharmonic and visiting orchestras, soloists, and chamber groups from around the world. The Opera productions at the Salzburg Festival headline the top singers and conductors, making the Festival a prime destination for opera-lovers and talent scouts alike.
Concerts from the Salzburg Festival will return to WFMT in the winter of 2015.
