Description

Past, Present and Future of the Festival

From 26 July until 31 October 2021, Salzburg Museum hosts a provincial exhibition in honor of the 100-year anniversary of the Salzburg Festival. In an exhibition space spanning roughly 1800 m², it provides insights into the past, present and future of this festival of the performing arts. Other than the artistic and cultural development of the Festival, the exposition also places the Festival in the historical, political and economic context of the fortunes of Salzburg City itself.

Place of Encounter

True to Max Reinhardt’s conviction that a theatrical production should engage in an intensive exchange with the audience, the exhibition was conceived as a stage play presented in four chapters. While Chapter 1 "Great Cinema" welcomes guests and introduces the history of the Salzburg Festival through film, Chapter 2 entitled "The Archive" in the magnificent Max-Gandolph Library represents the heart of the exhibition. Here, 100 photographic, film and audio documents along with world-famous props communicate 100 years of Festival history in ways that are appealing and easy to comprehend. In Chapter 3 "Encounter through Dialogue" , the various perspectives of artists and institutions – such as Jewish Museum Vienna, Theater Museum Vienna, the Salzburg State Archive and the Vienna Philharmonic – generate a dialogue that makes the phenomenon that is the Salzburg Festival palpable on all levels. Chapter 4 "On Stage" transforms the Art Hall of Salzburg Museum into a stage for the duration of the exhibition, a stage upon which people with close ties to the Salzburg Festival are given a voice.

  • When does the provincial exhibition take place?
    From 26 July 2020 until 31 October 2021. Opening times are always Tuesday to Sunday between 9 AM and 5 PM.
  • Where will the provincial exhibition be held?

  • What is the theme of the provincial exhibition “Great World Theatre”?
