Since then, there have been opera performances and concerts with classical and pop music on the open-air natural stage every year in the summer months of July and August. From 2001, as part of the opera festival, a children 's opera was also staged every year in the neighboring quarry "Papagenos Opernwelt" in St. Margarethen. The stage was in the disused part of the Roman quarry. founder andThe director of the festival was the Austrian Wolfgang Werner until mid-2014.
