The Broadway League, the organisation representing theatres, issued a statement that ticket holders would get a refund or could exchange their tickets for a future date.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the Salzburg Festival will take place this year, only under more stringent security and hygiene measures. For example, only personalized tickets are sold and checked against the identity card at the entrance.

According to President Helga Rabl-Stadler, the goal must be that infection chains can be traced immediately. All attendees are required to wear a mask upon entrance and can only remove them while seated.
