A wonderful complement to the Salzburg Festival
The performance of Hugo von Hoffmansthal's "Jedermann" ("Everyman") on Salzburg's Cathedral Square in 1920 is considered the birth of the Salzburg Festival. Herbert von Karajan started the Eastertime complement to the Salzburg classical music festival in 1967. Over the years, the Easter Festival has become known as an independent highlight in the Austrian and international calendar of cultural events and thrills audiences with elaborate productions, incredible performances and first-class musicians.
