100 years of Mozartfest - 100 years of closeness through music!

Dear friends of the Mozartfest,

this year, based on the experience of the Corona Pandemic 2020, we initially only took your ticket orders. We have now made the bookings according to the approved capacities at the beginning of April and sent out the invoices after waiting as long as possible. The basis for the hall plans is the current status of the hygiene rules. We will continuously inform you about remaining tickets or additional vacant seats via our event calendar or contact you personally if you are on the waiting list.

Even at this point in time, we cannot say with certainty how events will be held during the four weeks of the Mozartfest from May 28 to June 27. The concrete feasibilities depend too much on various developments in the coming weeks. Perspectives through improved vaccination strategies and rapid testing procedures are central tasks of politics and are not in our hands. With our team and the backing of the city of Würzburg, we are doing everything we can to ensure that the anniversary season can take place as fully as possible. Finally, we hope that our anticipation of 100 years of Mozartfest can lead to many encounters with our artists and you as a large audience.

In view of the unpredictable nature of the virus, we ask for your understanding and flexibility if we have to react to changed situations at short notice. At the moment we are only allowed to occupy the concert halls with a maximum of 25-30% of the visitor capacity. As a result, not all of you have been able to have your ticket wishes fulfilled, or not to the full extent. Of course, we regret this very much.

Like every festival, the Mozartfest lives from the international artists who come to Würzburg from all over the world. We are in permanent exchange with the orchestras and individual artists. Again, by no means all questions have been answered regarding entry permits, quarantine regulations, testing, etc., which could affect lineups or programs of your booked concerts. All pandemic-related changes can be found on a daily basis in our event calendar: in terms of content, location and time.

Thanks to our close cooperation with our media partners, numerous concerts will be broadcast, including our opening concert on May 28 on BR Klassik, on BR television and as a live video stream. All dates can be found in the section Media.

We look forward to seeing you again. Stay healthy and trust, as we do, in Hermann Hesse's credo: »Mozart. That means: the world has a meaning!«

Your Mozartfest Team
