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.

Music is an important part of my life, and so is social engagement.

I am a supporter of the Festspielhaus because I feel we should show our children that great cultural achievements are not self-sustaining.

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 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."
