Festspiel-Ball 2012

Galadinner in der Fürsterzbischöflichen Residenz Concertino, festliche Eröffnung und Tanz auf der Bühne der Felsenreitschule


  • 01 September 2012, 18:00


Invitation to the Dance

At the end of the Salzburg Festival we cordially invite you to the 1st Salzburg Festival Ball. This is intended to become a wonderful tradition, starting in 2012. Every year on the last Saturday of the season the motto will be “Everybody Dance!”

The evening begins with a gala dinner in the Prince-Archbishop’s Residence and then we all go together to the Felsenreitschule.

The opening ceremony danced by the young couples, the festive concert with great stars and also of course the unique setting of the Baroque arcades hewn into the rock of the Mönchsberg will create the atmosphere for an unforgettable ball.
