100 years of Mozartfest Würzburg 2021
Germany’s oldest Mozart festival celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2021. The centenary season opens on 28 May and continues through to 27 June 2021 under the patronage of the Bavarian Minister President Dr. Markus Söder. The 100 years of the Mozartfest will be celebrated in a multi-facetted programme, including all the Fest’s milestones and turning points, but also reflecting present-day innovations. The history of Mozart’s influence is examined from various perspectives and in a variety of event formats. As in the early days of the Mozartfest, the aim is to celebrate the polyphony of the arts: the visual arts, architecture, music, dance, literature.
