The curtain will rise in the Digital Festival Hall on July 2, 2021

The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden is launching its own video platform with the Digital Festival Hall. The first concert will be streamed live on the new platform on Friday, July 2, 2021 from 8 pm. The first works to be heard and seen will be Ludwig van Beethoven’s symphonies nos. 4, 5, and 8. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with its setting of Schiller's “Ode to Joy” will follow on Sunday, July 4, 2021 from 5 pm. The Chamber Orchestra of Europe will perform under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin. A ticket for the live stream costs ten euros and includes seven-day access to the concert. Access codes can be purchased in the Festspielhaus webshop: www.festspielhaus.de, further information at: www.digitalfestivalhall.de Artistic Director encouraged by digital house festival

"I am very excited that we can now take this step," says Festspielhaus Artistic Director Benedikt Stampa. "Our digital Hausfestspiele (House Festivals) during the lockdown months encouraged us to venture into this level of digitalization." The Digital Festival Hall will offer live and video-on-demand programs involving the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. In addition to the current Beethoven cycle (until July 10, 2021), Arrigo Boito’s opera Mefistofele featuring stars such as Erwin Schrott, Angel Joy Blue, and Charles Castronovo as well as a concert with the Berliner Philharmoniker and cellist Yo Yo Ma will also be on offer. Further programs are to follow in the coming months.

"The investment made by the city of Baden-Baden in the Festspielhaus’s audio and video technology in 2020 has a new, important application in the form of the Digital Festival Hall," says Benedikt Stampa. "I hope that we can gradually develop a wonderful showcase for the festival and for Baden-Baden."
