Coronavirus

Juvenilia events, unfortunately, must be canceled

March 10, 2020. We are facing difficult times. Fear over the spread of the Coronavirus/Covid-19 has already disrupted our event in Venice. With the known situation as it is now, theatres in Italy, France, Germany, Austria and other European countries are forced to cancel their performances. Today Berlin’s culture senator Klaus Lederer announced that all performances in major state-owned concert halls are to be cancelled until April 19 .

This regulation affects our Juvenilia event in Berlin which we are forced to cancel now. Austria is banning entry to anyone arriving from Italy without a health certificate. Austria issued a level 6 travel safety warning advising its citizens against travel to Italy. Austrians in Italy will still be permitted to travel home if they agree to spend two weeks in home quarantine. Austria also prohibits all indoor events with more than 100 participants and outdoor events of more than 500 people until April 3 .

It is not yet clear what impact this will have on the Salzburg Easter Festival, which is due to take place from 4th to 13th April 2020. For now our event is not affected by these restrictions.

Nevertheless, the Austrian authorities can extend this period easily. As soon as we have more information from the Salzburg Easter Festival, we will inform you immediately. Regarding the reimbursements of the event fees (Venice, Berlin) you will receive an e-mail soon. All the best and take care!
