Just in: Salzburg Festival claims 95 percent audience

These are raw figures from today’s press release and I don’t have 2010 to hand, but it looks like a slight dip on past years.

Visitor totals reached 251,000, revenues Euro 24.8 million.

Some of it went to charity:

  • Following the appeal to donate for the victims of the hunger catastrophe in Eastern Africa after the dress rehearsals for Le Nozze di Figaro, Cosi fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Macbeth and The Makropulos Case, many audience members responded, donating an overall sum of  € 25,791.13 (for Nachbar in Not).
