The Winterfest thanks all its sponsors for their support and the whole team for its commitment. Especially we want to thank the audience for their loyalty and enthusiasm.
In the knowledge of all this support we can start with the preparations of the Winterfest 16!
With standing ovations and long-lasting applause the audience thanked Les Rois Vagabonds at the premiere of "Concerto pour deux Clowns". The clownish concert of Julia Caprez and Igor Sellem can be experienced until January 6th. A few tickets are still available.
The Mirrortent at the Winterfest has a lot of faces - every day it shows a different colour of itself. The beautiful tent of the 19th century is much more than only a "danspaleis".
Young bands from Salzburg present their new albums, well known musicians appreciate the extraordinary stage and ambience, poetry and cabaret will make you laugh and think and the first evenings of the new year will be enlightend with silent films from Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy and Federico Fellini.
Upcoming events in the mirrortent (a selection):
For the first time the Winterfest presents a comfortable reading corner where you can find illustrated books, novels and children's books and immerse into dhe world of circus before or after the shows.

Not more than 100 persons fit into the tiny tent of Bêtes de Foire. The manege resembles a little factory: fabrics, rags and all kinds of objects pile up in the back. Under the hands of Elsa de Witte all these materials are brought fo life and create an artistic circus illusion.
"Attached" was the slogan in the circus tent last friday, December 4th, when Magmanus performed their sporty and clownish show for the first time in front of an Austrian audience. A whole tent filled with laughter, wonder and a lot of sympathy for the adventurous artists. "Such playfull kids hidden in these sturdy men!", Karl Harb from the Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten wrote. You can read the whole review in our press reviews.
How long do you have to train for a handstand? Do all artists come from a circus family? And what is it with this "elephant"?
The artists of Cirque Le Roux, Magmanus and Bêtes de Foire will answer your questions every Wednesday before Christmas after the show. Free Entry! Christian Sattlecker will moderate the talk.

With their show "The Elephant in the Room" the french company Cirque Le Roux opened the 15th Winterfest on November 25. A thrilled audience appreciated the performance of the four artists with thunderous applause and standing ovations.
