The Salzburg Festival (German: Salzburger Festspiele) is a prominent festival of music and drama established in 1920. It is held each summer, for five weeks starting in late July, in Salzburg, Austria, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart’s operas are a focus of the festival; one highlight is the annual performance of Hofmannsthal’s play Jedermann (Everyman)

Max Reinhardt (1873 – 1943) was an Austrian-born theater and film director, intendant, and theatrical producer. With his innovative stage productions, he is regarded as one of the most prominent directors of German-language theater in the early 20th century. In 1920, he established the Salzburg Festival with the performance of Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s Jedermann.

Arturo Toscanini (1867 – 1957) was an Italian conductor. He was one of the most acclaimed and influential musicians of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, renowned for his intensity, his perfectionism, his ear for orchestral detail and sonority, and his eidetic memory. He was at various times the music director of La Scala in Milan and the New York Philharmonic. Later in his career, he was appointed the first music director of the NBC Symphony Orchestra (1937–1954), and this led to his becoming a household name, especially in the United States, through his radio and television broadcasts and many recordings of the operatic and symphonic repertoire.
