The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden is working on a programmatic step plan: closure due to the uncertain situation in the Corona Pandemic until the end of February 2021 and return to the stage with the Easter Festival and the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Artistic director Benedikt Stampa says: "It is completely unclear what the situation will be like during the next weeks and how quickly we will be able to make a festival-worthy program possible again."

Lockdown has consequences

The festivals and the Festspielhaus do not have their own ensemble that could be activated within a very short time. A four-week lockdown for example will require at least as much time to prepare for the program and audience.

The customers will be informed individually. In this context, artistic director Benedikt Stampa expressed his thanks for the great understanding and patience shown towards the Festspielhaus and its team. "Our audience and the artists who are now to be consoled again are my incentive to offer a festival program in Baden-Baden again as soon as possible.”
