the purpose of my visit was to attend 3 events at the Festspielhaus. I was not disappointed. Though I had known the artists would be wonderful, the theatre itself was a delightful surprise, attractive, and very good acoustically.
NEGATIVE SIDE: The concert hall and all rooms were extremely over heated at all performances, detracting from the pleasure of the events.

Great looking programme with some serious Classical Artist playing during the spring festival.

Huge opera house. They get great attractions here, but alas, not nearly frequently enough. Good acoustics.

I spent about 14 hours at the Festspielhaus this month, at the Mariinksy theatre's 'Ring Cycle'.

Severe problems with the production (poor singers) but the theatre is a treat!

Very comfortable seats, good sightlines, great air-conditioning, lovely, big, open spaces to mill around in during the intervals (both inside and out). Most impressive was that, despite the theatre seating, I think, around 2,500, there was never a time when we waited behind more that 2 people for an interval drink and pretzel.

On the way out, every lady is given a rose at the door.

A superb facility!

Thank Ailidh

The FestSpielHaus is a fascinating building. Fronted by the old station building which is now the foyer and box office, the actual opera house itself is a modern glass and brick building opened in the late 1990's.
I went on the backstage tour, and despite being all in German (you have to think ahead or have a large party for an English tour), it was fascinating going back stage and seeing all the machinery required for a modern opera house. I have not been on a tour like this anywhere else.
Well worth the €7 and just over an hour.
