Bei den Eutiner Festspielen gibt es einen ungeplanten Personalwechsel: Aus gesundheitlichen Gründen legt Hardy Rudolz sein Amt als Musicalchef nieder.
The reactions of the audience and in the media to the productions of opera and musicals were overwhelmingly positive, this good response was also reflected in the box office.
Currently almost 29,000 tickets have been sold. Two performances of Verdi's opera "A Masked Ball" and even five performances of the Cole Porter musical "Kiss me, Kate" are on the programme until the season finale on 31 August.
Falk Herzog: "I am sure that we will achieve our economic target in the end with at least 30,000 visitors. This would be our second-best result in 20 years and show that our record number of visitors in the exceptional summer of 2018 was not only a stroke of luck due to the weather. The festival is once again a permanent fixture for music lovers throughout northern Germany."
The Managing Director was particularly pleased to note that customer demand was almost evenly distributed between musicals and opera. Herzog pointed out that the gala evening bidding farewell to artistic director Dominique Caron is offering a pure opera programme; the fact that it is almost sold out also strengthens the Festspiele in offering both types of musical theatre in the future. "We want to win new friends without neglecting the old ones", Herzog stressed.
