Salzburg Festival - audiences and dress code

It´s no secret, that the Salzburg Festival is a sort of summer playing ground for the rich and famous who dress accordingly. Premieres are major social events with numerous gawkers hanging around the street. Paparazzi´s photographing during intermissions is very common as well. Unless being Austrian or very well updated with Mitteleuropean celebrity gossip, you may recognize very few if any of these people, though.

A section of the audience (~20 %) arrive in glitzy evening dresses, matinée performances or not. 40% wear less glitzy (read: relatively old-fashioned) dresses. ~10% wear informal clothing. The rest wear something in-between.
