tips for traveling with a 2 year old

by khnoland

Hello,

I am so glad I found this website! I am working at the Festival this summer, and I am bringing my 2 year old son with me. I hope to have someone accompany me to help with his care, but if that does not work out, I was wondering about possible sitters/nannys already in Bregenz and what the going rate is. I am also looking for possible rental of a toddler bed or crib and possibly some toys. I am staying 6 weeks, so I need items that will make my son feel comfortable. I am also on a tight budget, so I can not afford to be too extravagant. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Where will you be staying? Hotel, B&B, apartment? Ask your landlord if they know any babysitter service.
Can your employer provide anything?
Does your son speak some German? If not, it will be very hard for him if you don't find anyone speaking enough English.
There is an English playgroup in Bregenz, they may be able to tell you more.

Good luck.

You also can try in Switzerland or Germany as Bregenz has the border to both. Google for babysitter for example.

Thank you for your reply. I am staying at an apartment. My son does not speak any German, but his english should hopefully be clearer by summer. He will only be 27 months. I will look into that playgroup, thank you for that info.

by Onedragon

Leonora and Ines

by Nemorino

In the second scene Leonora tells Ines that she is in love with a mysterious troubadour who comes to serenade her at night. This turns out to be Manrico, a gypsy who is one of Count Luna's enemies in the civil war.

Count Luna is also in love with Leonora. At the end of Act 1 he and Manrico run off to fight a duel. Later we learn that Manrico won the fight and was about to kill Luna, when a mysterious inner voice told him not to. The two fight again in a battle, and Manrico is badly wounded.

Luna's aria at the convent

by Nemorino

Count Luna sings of how he loves Leonora and how not even God will be able to snatch her from him -- Non può rapirti a me!.

After this the nuns file in to begin the ceremony, Leonora starts to take her vows, Luna interrupts and tries to abduct her. But then Manrico's men erupt onto the scene, some of them even rappelling down using ropes from the bridge at the top of the castle/refinery.

Ferrando advises Count Luna not to fight because they are completely outnumbered. So it is Manrico who takes Leonora away, even stealing Luna's boat to do so.


If you enlarge this photo you can see a video screen near the top, just right of center. This is one of two screens that show live images of the conductor and the musicians (all wearing blue shirts or blouses) of the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra throughout the performance. This is especially nice in the many parts of this opera in which one of the orchestra musicians has a beautiful solo passage, so you can see them as they play.

Taking their bows

by Nemorino

Here the gypsies -- supernumeraries and members of the stage chorus -- are taking their bows after the performance.

All told about 1600 people work for the Bregenz Festival during the summer -- but only 60 the rest of the year.

Make sure that you get the most of your time spent in Bregenz. For a small city, surprisingly, many cultural and historical sites can be easily missed. Make your way to/contact the Tourist Board:
