The 150th birthday of Franz Lehar will be honoured with the operetta “The Land of Smiles”, while the 140th anniversary of Jacques Offenbach’s death will be commemorated with the production “Orpheus in the Underworld” from the 2019 Salzburg Festival. The musical legacies of great artists who have recently passed away will also be brought to life on screen once more for the audience. This includes the opera singers Jessye Norman and Mirella Freni, the director Franco Zeffirelli, the contemporary composer Krzysztof Penderecki and the exceptionally talented pop producer Avicii.
Look forward to 65 days of music, entertainment and fine dining in comfortable and protected surroundings. Reserve your spectator box free of charge, enjoy operas and concerts under an open sky, and experience a summer on Rathausplatz “like never before”!
