It was also he who produced its premiere at the Salzburg Festival on 22 August — marking the birth of the Festival itself. In his hour of greatest need, he is abandoned by his friends, his money and his lover. Only after he has repented for his transgressions and committed himself to Christianity, may he stand armed with his faith and his good deeds before the divine judgment seat. A place seemingly predestined as the stage and backdrop for this religious play. Enthralling the public in the title role have been such stage greats as Klaus Maria Brandauer, Maximilian Schell and, the longest-serving Jedermann of them all, Peter Simonischek.
