August 1 – 31

Another artist closely associated with the Festival passed away: the painter and sculptor Anton Faistauer, whose death was announced on 13 February. In the summer the Festival celebrated its tenth anniversary with a great many festivities; the area in front of the Festival Theatre was renamed Max Reinhardt Square, and a bust of the great director and co-founder of the Festival was placed in the Faistauer Foyer. The programme presented a sort of retrospective of the many productions mounted in the preceding decade.
