Salzburg Festival issues 70,000 invitationsmain
Message from the directors today:
Good news in challenging times: Our new programme is currently being printed. 70,000 copies should be delivered to you, our faithful customers all over the world before the holidays and the New Year.
And starting on 10 December, you will find the 2021 programme online at www.salzburgfestival.at.
As promised, this coming summer we will present important productions in the opera, drama and concert departments which were postponed from the summer of 2020, extending the centenary celebrations of the Salzburg Festival into the autumn of 2021…
Reducing some of the pressure of decision-making, while also enabling us to observe the development of the coronavirus pandemic a bit longer, as previously announced, we have set a much later deadline for submitting your orders, i.e. 28 February 2021. On that date, your reservation becomes binding, and we will do our utmost to process all orders as soon as possible. If it then turns out that attending a performance is impossible due to official regulations (e.g. quarantine requirements), of course you will be able to cancel your ticket(s) and we will refund the purchase price.
Hopefully, however, the vaccinations will be able to drive out the pandemic. And thus, we hope, for all our sakes, that 2021 will be a Festival year as we love them – full of unforgettable artistic experiences and interesting encounters with friends from all over the world.
