The competition “Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award” was initiated in 2010 by Nestlé and the Salzburg Festival. The competition’s goal is to give highly talented young conductors a decisive career impulse. The award winners are chosen by an expert jury. Apart from the classical and romantic repertoire, the interpretation of contemporary works is a decisive criterion in its deliberations. The prize carries a cash value of 15,000 Euros and will be presented to a young conductor aged between 22 and 35 for the sixth time in 2015. Plácido Domingo takes on the honorary presidency of the Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award and will shepherd the initiative into its next phase.

Not only our Festival Ball debutantes are styled by professionals – you too can entrust your looks to the teams of Coiffeure Sturmayr and MAC Cosmetics, available at our exclusive Beauty Boudoir at the Haus für Mozart. Starting at the same time as the doors open, at 8:30 pm, the stylists are at your service, touching up your makeup or your ball hairdo. After a few rounds on the dance floor, perhaps you need a few quiet minutes – in that case, let your tense neck muscles, your hands or dance-wearied feet be pampered by a massage at the booth of Salzburg’s Institut Hobé from Heidi Steger!

The cosmetics company M.A.C, one of the Festival’s product sponsors since 2008, followed an invitation from the costume and makeup department to give a workshop. Kathrin Jokubonis, M.A.C’s training manager, provided a four-hour session including valuable insider tips about primers, concealers, foundations and the right contour effects for mature skin. “Our products were originally designed for photo shootings. Because they resist spotlight glare well, they are also perfectly suited for theatre productions,” says Kathrin Jokubonis.
