The rising star of the local gastronomic scene, Salzburg’s award-winning chef Andreas Döllerer, seemed to have no problem whatsoever assembling the infrastructure for the gala dinner for 530 persons at last year’s Ball at the Residenz, feeding the guests within a short period of time at the highest level and offering exquisite specialties from the Salzburg region.

published in: Festival Ball

Auditions, tailored costumes, fittings and an intensive week of rehearsals...

The only difference is that they are not professional dancers, but 120 young ladies and gentlemen, most of whom are incredibly nervous and excited before their great moment in the spotlight. Many of them – some of them have just graduated from secondary school – will be opening a ball for the first time.

published in: Festival Ball

While the season’s complement of balls and dances is in full swing in Vienna, it finishes in the capital on Shrove Tuesday – in Salzburg, on the other hand, you can extend the ball season with a particularly festive night: since last year, the Salzburg Festival has its crowning finale in the Salzburg Festival Ball – taking place this year on August 31. Starting at 6:00 pm with a festive gala dinner at the Archiepiscopal Residence, it continues with a ceremonious march to the Felsenreitschule, where the official ball opens at 9:30 pm with the dance of 60 debutante couples. Furthermore, the event features a concert by some of the Festival’s exclusive stars.

Join us as we celebrate the highlight of the Festival, watch the debutantes glide through their opening dance and enjoy the wonderful backdrop of the Felsenreitschule – all through an unforgettably festive night!
