With popular opera productions, the Opera Festival has since drawn over 200,000 visitors year after year. In addition to international opera stars, a wide-ranging programme also offers big acts from jazz and pop under the stars. Every year in the "Children's Opera" series, a fairy-tale opera also carries a young audience off into imaginative magical worlds. A varied range in the newly designed Foyer Park provides for culinary delights. The symbiosis of calcareous soils and the microclimate fostered by Lake Neusiedl provides the conditions for the special wine culture of the region, which is presented at numerous stalls.
