The Eutin Festival is on the verge of a historical caesura: for the first time since 1951 it will not present any performances on the lake stage in summer.
What a pity: The Eutin Festival has to cancel all performances of the 2020 season due to the Corona crisis. Learn more
The special conditions are available to a limited extent for performances of the musical "Kiss me, Kate" and the singspiel "Abu Hassan" composed by Carl Maria von Weber. This substantial discount on tickets is made possible by financial support from the Sparkasse Holstein foundations.
The foundations have been actively supporting the festival for years, especially in projects for young people. In the summer of 2019, this support is to benefit children and schoolchildren from the districts of Ostholstein and Stormarn. In addition to the regular discount of 20 percent for schoolchildren, this campaign offers further price reductions of up to 60 percent.
Specifically, the offer involves a visit to the dress rehearsal of "Kiss me, Kate" on the open-air stage on 26 June: a total of 150 tickets are available for seats in price categories 2 and 3 at a unit price of 12.50 euros each. In addition, 50 tickets for the special price of 10 euros in seat category 4 will be available at the dress rehearsal. For comparison: a ticket in seat category 2 costs 33.60 euros with the regular student discount, in seat category 4 it is 20 euros.
The prices for attending performances of the family opera "Abu Hassan" will also be reduced for children and young people. The cheerful Singspiel, which Carl Maria von Weber composed in 1813 after a fairy tale from "A Thousand and One Nights", will be performed in July in collaboration with the Musikhochschule Lübeck.
This oriental fairy tale opera will premiere for the whole family on 3 July afternoon in the Torhaus at the Eutiner Opera Barn. Further performances follow there on 11 and 17 July. A total of 200 tickets are available at a price of 3 euros each (instead of the regular discount of 8 euros).
Registrations for these particularly favourable ticket allotments will be accepted immediately at the Festspiele. The tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis after receipt of the orders.
Colourful entertainment, great emotions - this is the enormous emotional range promised by director Tobias Materna for the production of the musical "A Cage Full of Fools" at the Eutin Festival.
The Korean baritone Hyunkyum Kim won the Eutin Festival prize of honour. Hilary Griffiths, Artistic Director Classical Music at the Festival, congratulated the 28-year-old singer on this success in the finale of the Maritim Music Prize.
