27 July – 1 September

Alfred Roller, whose stage designs set the tone for the Festival’s aesthetics from its inception, died on 21 June. His sets, however, remained in use as late as 1953. Along with Bruno Walter, the musical programme was now dominated by Arturo Toscanini. Josef Krips made his Festival debut with a performance of Der Rosenkavalier. Attila Hörbiger played Jedermann for the first time, lending the part an entirely new shape. His reading, with its characteristic tenor inflection, influenced later actors in the role for generations.
