Salzburger Theater- und Musiksommer 4–29 August

According to Hitler’s decree of 8 March 1943, the scheduled events were no longer allowed to take place under the name of “festival". They were renamed the “Salzburg Summer of Theatre and Music” and set aside primarily for armaments workers and war invalids from the Salzburg region. The programme consisted of three productions of spoken theatre and two of opera. Richard Strauss’s Second Horn Concerto received its world première at one of the orchestral concerts.

The Festival’s co-founder, Max Reinhardt, died on 31 October in his American exile.

1943: Die Zauberflöte with actors Gusti Huber and Paul Hörbiger as Papagena and Papageno.
