Mayor Michael Ludwig sent a greeting to the opening: “With the realization of the film festival, Vienna is setting an example as a cosmopolitan city, and with its visit, the guests are setting an example. The need for culture and entertainment has been given a secure framework in which while observing all the necessary measures reflects the typical Viennese way of life. I therefore invite all Viennese and guests of the city to enjoy this unique event in a new guise “.
In keeping with the new production of the event, the festival started with Beethoven’s “Fidelio”, also in a new production by Oscar winner Christoph Waltz from the Theater an der Wien. Hundreds of visitors came for this unique cultural experience and to get to know the new arrangement on the Rathausplatz.
In the well-attended catering area “Carmen’s Corner”, gourmets could enjoy the delicacies that are served by DO & CO every day from 11 am to midnight. And the weather also played along and stretched a sparkling starry sky over the town hall square in mild temperatures. The unique ambience, the impressive performance and the well-structured process finally did their part – the guests were visibly enthusiastic about the cultural offer and the successful innovations.
