Salzburg Festival - Felsenreitschule

Felsenreitschule, located immediately next door to the Grosses Festspielhaus and in the same building as Haus für Mozart has 1.412 seats and 25 standing room places and is the third operatic venue of the Salzburg Festival (the others being Grosses Festspielhaus and Haus für Mozart). Standing room tickets are sold in advance exactly like all other seats. The view is fine from all seats. The stage is exceptional as it is framed by stone arches and subsequently not very deep, which may both be a limitation as well as an advantage depending on the production.

Located in the same building as Haus Für Mozart, the Karl-Böhm-Saal serves as the main venue during intermissions.

Selected previous productions from Felsenreitschule on DVD: Clemenza di Tito (2003, Kusej), Die Gezeichneten (2005, Lehnhoff), La Damnation de Faust (2000, Fura Del Baus), Mozart Gala 2006, Romeo et Juliette (2008, Machaidze/Villazon).
