Festspielhaus Supporters

As part of the Festspielhaus Supporters’ Circle, cultural enthusiasts show their commitment with individual donations. Through their strong identification with the Festspielhaus and its top-level opera, concert, and ballet performances, these music lovers make the Festspielhaus program possible. With their mostly long-term support, the members of the Supporters’ Circle make a statement of solidarity while ensuring that culture can continue to move forward in the future.

For Baden-Baden, the Festspielhaus is a gateway to the world.

In our community of private sponsors, we ensure that it remains wide open – to the best on stage and to an interested audience across generations.

Your benefits

Exclusive pre-booking rights for all events is just one of the benefits appreciated by Supporters. Depending on the donation amount, members of the Supporters’ Circle enjoy further advantages including the use of the exclusive Club Lounge by Rolf Benz and participation in rehearsal visits, music seminars, and cultural tours. Festive gatherings in the building and backstage ensure many unforgettable highlights together with this wonderful "Festspielhaus family."
