23 of the 56 events were free. And nearly 11,000 guests did not miss opera performances and concerts. In addition, more than 9,000 interested people attended the aforementioned free events, such as “Mobile Concerto”, “Musica Montana”, luncheons, the Ambras Castle Festival and “Timpani and Trumpets” on the Golden Roof.

This year, De Marchi was musically responsible for two works by Vivaldi as part of the festival at the Tiroler Landestheater: the opera “L’Olimpiade” and the scenic oratorio “Juditha Triumphans”. The Italian is leaving Innsbruck after 14 years as manager – more on that in Farewell and Peace Appeal at Festwochen.
