Salzburg Festival - Haus Für Mozart

The previously known Kleines Festspielhaus emerged after an extensive renovation in 2006 as Haus Für Mozart - one of the three operatic venues of the Salzburg Festival (the others being the Grosses Festspielhaus and Felsenreitschule).

Located immediately next door to the Grosses Festspielhaus and in the same building as the Felsenreitschule, the Haus für Mozart has 1.495 seats and 85 standing room places. Apart from the standing room tickets (which are sold in advance exactly like all the other seats), the cheapest seats are on the 2nd balcony, with fine view. Beware, the slope of the parterre is almonst non-existent, so small people may well risk spending 360 Euro for a ticket and see almost nothing of the stage. Apart from the balcony, the Karl-Böhm-Saal serves as the main location during intermissions.

Selected previous productions on DVD: Nozze di Figaro (2006, Guth/Netrebko), Entfürung aus dem Serail (2006, Herheim),.Don Giovanni 2008 (Guth)
