16. The Large Festival Hall (Großes Festspielhaus)

The Large Festival Hall  was built according to plans by the Austrian architect, Clemens Holzmeister, and was inaugurated by Herbert von Karajan in 1960.

The facade of the Baroque horse stables, designed by Fischer von Erlach, was retained, as were parts of the intermission foyers. The hall seats an audience of 2,177, with an excellent view of the stage.
The Large Festival Hall is used for operas and festive concerts. The orchestra pit is the work of the stage designer, Richard Peduzzi.
The portal of the main stage can be moved between 14 and 30 metres.
