The “Preparations” for a big holiday in Austria

So we went to Faust. I was there, I listened, I saw. Did I feel like I was present, comprehended, or perceived? That's another question. Goethe's life work may have slipped over my head among the last row seats, sweltering theatre, and poor vocal projection by the actors (*cough, cough, Mephisto*).

But as I left the theatre, there was a concert set up right across from the theatre in front of the Rathaus (neo-gothic city hall). The next day was Tag der Arbeit, May Day, where everyone goes out to celebrate. It looks like the celebrations aren't exclusively on the 1st.
