The Stages of Bregenz

It's funny how some things are just so awesome but very few people know of them.  It seems to all depend on where in the world things happen. If it's the UK or USA the entire planet seems to get wind of it bit if it's Japan or say Malaysia then there's very little chance that you'll here of it unless of course it's to do with war etc. Austria has been keeping a secret from most of us in Bregenz the capital of Vorarlberg, the westernmost federal state of Austria. In fact it's been keeping the secret since 1946. The Bregenz festival is an annual event which makes use of an impressive stage built on Lake Constance. The actors & actresses are positively dwarfed by the scale of the sets that have been built for each & every opera since 1946. Click on the photograph below and it should take you to a link showing many different stages from over the years:
