Corona Update
Eutiner Festspiele cancel 70th season

To our greatest regret, we cannot spare you the subject of corona: For the first time since 1951, we are forced to cancel all performances on the lake stage planned for the summer.

We had hoped until the very end not to have to make this decision. But nobody knows yet when public events with more than 1,000 guests will be permitted by the state again. And what official regulations will apply. Now our own responsibility for the well-being of our guests, artists and employees leaves us no choice.

This is particularly painful because, in addition to the artistic preparations, the advance sale went very well: 12,500 tickets have been booked, 15 percent more than last year. This trend again promised a great season with more than 35,000 festival visitors. What a pity!

What should be has to be: Regardless of the new legal options, we are determined to offer all customers compensation for tickets already purchased as a gesture of goodwill. Because nothing is more important to the Festspiele than your trust!

Now more than ever, however, the Eutin Festival is dependent on your support. Because our non-profit organisation is financed to 85 percent from ticket sales, only 15 percent of its expenses are covered by public subsidies.

Please remain firmly by our side so that we can confidently plan an anniversary programme for next season with Weber's opera "Der Freischütz" and Bernstein's musical "West Side Story".

Stay healthy and goodbye!
