Sunday’s night’s Rigoletto had to be moved indoors due to a heavy rainstorm.

Only 1,650 people were able to see the semi-staged performance. The remaining 3,750 were sent home with their money back.

The only good news for Bregenz is that after three rain-offs the insurance kicks in, meaning the festival does not lose out financially from further cancellations.

  • Alan says:

    They’ll lose out next year when their insurance goes through the roof!

  • Karl says:

    How about building a large amphitheater like Tanglewood’s shed?
