Great World Theatre – The Salzburg Festival Centenary

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Curtain up! The Salzburg Festival and the Salzburg Museum welcome you to the State Exhibition Great World Theatre – The Salzburg Festival Centenary.
Together we tell you about the history of the most important festival in the world for classical music and the performing arts.
Our exhibition presents the Salzburg Festival from multiple perspectives. Find out about its origins and development. Its essence and its significance. Highlights, crises and changes. Its artists. People who have shaped it and made it possible. Theatres, venues and traditions.
Experience all this in the exhibition – but also the magic of the theatre and art projects. Have a look backstage and embark on your own personal trip of discovery through a specially set up Festival archive.
An exceptional feature of our exhibition is its development in dialogue with artists, institutions and partners, experts and many Festival guests.
Max Reinhardt was convinced that every theatre play can only come to fulfilment in exchange with the audience. We have endeavoured to integrate this idea into our exhibition as well. With this in mind, please feel invited to delve into the world of the Salzburg Festival and to explore it actively.

Welcome to the Salzburg Museum!
