Program notes

In celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Salzburg Festival and thus the 90th performance of "Everyman", the play about a rich man’s death has been thoroughly reworked and largely recast.

Nicholas Ofczarek is a young, contemporary and entirely convincing new occupant of the title role of Everyman, which is being performed on Salzburg's Domplatz. The Vienna Burgtheater actor, who was born in 1971 and who has succeeded Peter Simonischek in the title role after eight years, portrays an arrogant, brutal businessman whose credo - by no means uncommon today – is that money equals power. He is highly credible in his depiction of the lead character’s fear of death and his belated transformation. Ofczarek is accompanied on stage by the multi award-winning actress, Birgit Minichmayr, as his paramour.
