Mozart At Home

Since 1999 Siemens has been sponsoring the Salzburg Festival and enabling free and open-air transmissions of current and past productions in cooperation with the ORF.
The Siemens Festival Nights in Salzburg had a very special highlight this year: For the first time the Salzburg Festival offered a web stream and opera-on-demand alongside public viewing. The premiere of Mozart's "CosÄ› fan tutte", conducted by Adam Fischer, was relayed live in perfect HD image- and 3D sound-quality at the Kapitelplatz during the festival.

Thousands tuned in to the premiere of Mozart's "CosÄ› fan tutte" on the eve of the festival as it was relayed worldwide via web stream. The cost, a mere 7.90 euros and was made available once more due to demand for 7 days after. People logged onto the www.siemens.com/festivalnight website and were highly impressed based on the comments received.

As for the festival itself, the team were joined for Austrian wine and other specialities in the Imlauer restaurant tent at the Kapitelplatz by the rest of the attendees to get a glimpse of Salzburg's successful public viewing spectacle and experience first class open air music. In the past few years, more than 2,000 people visited the public viewing, which relays shows live from the festival hall, every day. Altogether the Siemens Festival Nights welcome about 40,000 visitors per annum and will be delighted if you managed to grace the next one.
