The experience in the „Großes Festspielhaus“

27. November - 11. December 2016

70 YEARS SALZBURG ADVENT FESTIVAL AT THE GROSSES FESTSPIELHAUS

THE SALZBURG ADVENT FESTIVAL IN THE „GROSSES FESTSPIELHAUS“

is the seedbed for a great role model of the numerous “Advent festivals” in the whole German speaking area. Before 1946, when it was launched by Tobi Reiser Sr., the genre „Advent festival“ did not exist but became popular almost overnight. Since the opening of the “Großes Festspielhaus” in 1960, the meanwhile international renowned advent festival performs on exactly that stage.  

Round 1.6 Million people have experienced this astoundingly event in Salzburg’s advent. With over 150 singers, musicians, actors and so called “shepherd-children” from Salzburg and the Bavarian neighborhood the event takes place and is every year looked at from a new perspective. It always is absorbed with boundless enthusiasm by the round 36000 visitors.

At the Salzburg Advent festival, the most popular and most important event of the Salzburg Advent, traditional folk songs are performed by great singers and musicians, which always bulk large. New compositional creations and a scenic play make a harmonic whole with this wealthy treasure of traditions. With his fellow companion the main head of the event, Hand Köhl, is eager to give the Advent-event a modern interpretation which should touch our hearts and feelings. Through the relevant to the present day the Christian myth becomes a refreshing and liberating message which has much more than only a pre-Christmas romance.
