Held for five weeks each summer since 1920, the Salzburg Festival presents a programme of music and drama ranging from Mozart and Shakespeare to more contemporary works. A yearly feature is a performance of the play Everyman (Jedermann), dramatised by Hugo von Hofmannsthal. Mozart's works also take a centre stage, which is no surprise as he was born in Salzburg.
