Rossini in Wildbad
Belcanto Opera Festival

Belcanto Opera Festival 8-25 July 2021
This summer we celebrate the revival of culture with Rossini in Wildbad. The situation taught us not only to do the best, but to do something very special. During the past months we have been inspired to new ideas and approaches.
You will get to know highly unusual venues for music in Bad Wildbad. All of them have been chosen for their suitability for the special requirements of our repertoire. Such places include the lofty tower of the tree-top walk or the Wildline Bridge on the Sommerberg. The barbecue area, which is surrounded by tall trees in a clearing on the mountain, is also ideally suited for a musical experience. Silence and excellent acoustics characterise these places.
In the valley, we play in the open hall at the Marienruhe, in the enchanted Luft- und Sonnenbad in the Kurpark, at the Moorish Pavilion as well as on the Kurplatz. These are all places that convey a special, evocative atmosphere. In addition, they are easily accessible and allow barrier-free access. A shuttle service ensures the most comfortable journey possible to the venues, especially for people with limited mobility.
When studying the programme, you will notice that, unlike usual, we mostly play only once a day. We have to adapt to the course of the sun. Therefore matinees start earlier and evening events later. Afternoon events are not possible. And unfortunately the number of seats remains very limited for the time being.
IMPORTANT! Booking is open now. If we notice that a performance is already overbooked, you will receive a short message, especially quick if you provide an email contact.
Please note: Due to the Corona restrictions in the ticket office, there is currently no advance booking by telephone or in person. Please order online using the form.
In the second summer of the Corona pandemic, we are certainly still far from the old normal. However, the 32nd Belcanto Opera Festival from 8-25 July 2021 should be a great event. The conditions will be adapted to the updated health situation. Let our newsletter bring you up to date on a regular basis.
I hope for your interest - and for your understanding of everything that will be different, so that finally there will be music again ...
See you in Bad Wildbad this summer!
