Founding and development
1946 – The first Bregenz Festival Week took place just one year after the end of the Second World War. Using two gravel barges – one for the stage set, the other for the orchestra – Mozart’s early work "Bastien et Bastienne"was performed on the lake.
Even in its very first year, visitors from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and France secured the Festival a place of great international renown. From the very start the Vienna Symphony orchestra have played a leading part in the development and success of the Festival, and continue to do so right up to the present day.
