Willkommen in Salzburg (E) – Celebrating Jubilees / Die Jubiläumsfeier

The word „jubilee“ is defined as a time or season for rejoicing. It is a special anniversary celebrated after something or someone has completed a certain number of years of existence or activity. For example, last year Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain celebrated her diamond jubilee, or the 60th year of her coronation. Or, at the Salzburg Festival last summer, the 200th anniversary of Giuseppe Verdi was celebrated through productions of his opera Don Carlo and Falstaff. On tonight’s program we will talk about other jubilees closer to home, one of them being the 15th anniversary of the Radiofabrik.
