Baden-Baden-Gala 2015

The Marriage of Figaro


Admirers gush about the golden times of Karajan and Böhm, of Schwarzkopf, Rothenberger and Wunderlich. We, on the other hand, believe that such wonders can still be achieved today. Now is a particularly brilliant time for lovers of voice although our Baden-Baden Galas have been demonstrating it for a number of years by bringing together truly luxurious voices. This season will see “Figaro” in concert. Mozart’s most beautiful comic opera – which is the opera against which Strauss’ Rosenkavalier is often compared – plays with light and shadows. Comedy and tragedy directly alternate – fast paced humour as a principle, interrupted by a series of melancholic flashbacks by the Countess. We would like to welcome you to our 2015 Baden-Baden Gala!

In Italian with German and English surtitles.

    Individual subscription

    With an individual subscription you are not only able to choose and secure tickets for all your favourite performances; you can also make a considerable saving.  An individual subscription is dependent on the number of different performances chosen. For a simultaneous purchase of 7 or 8 tickets for 7 or 8 different performances, you will receive a discount of 10% off the original ticket price. For a simultaneous purchase of 9 tickets or more for 9 or more different performances, you will receive a discount of 15% off the original ticket price. The benefits of an individual subscription can also be used for concession tickets. Within an individual subscription, both regular priced tickets and concession tickets can be combined. A combination of different seating categories is always available.

    Please note: All performances must be booked on the same day. Pooling individual bookings after purchase does not count as an individual subscription.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to book an individual subscription online.
