Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

June 13 to September 12, 2020

Three months of packed programme awaits you at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern: Experience music in unusual places at one of the biggest classical music festivals. Music fans big and small get their money's worth here.

Would you like to listen to the Sächsische Staatskapelle in the indoor riding arena with your tie and collar? The Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern await you! From mid-June to September there's classical music on your ears and eyes - at more than 150 events at over 70 amazing locations. These include ruins, islands, old farmsteads, castles, backyard remises and churches. And the feeling of being part of the family constantly sneaks up on you. While renowned orchestras and soloists play their pieces, the kids scurry over the picnic blanket in the garden and behind the half-timbered house the son shows his rehearsed dressage ride.

The Program 2020

+++ Due to the Corona pandemic not all concerts can take place as planned. +++

To help you find your way around the variety of concerts, here are a few examples of the main programme points. The "Festivals in the Festival" will give you an overview. With 360° Gesang (singing) you will experience the fabulous world of vocal music for a weekend at Schloss Ulrichshusen. Listen to the various artists and orchestras as they reveal the extent of their voices in various genres. Take the Landpartie (country tour) through Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and listen to the evening concerts of the Young Elite at the most picturesque places. Unerhörte Orte (Unheard of places) are also filled with music, for example when classical sounds fill the buildings in the Neustrelitzer Parketzentrum or behind the scenes of a tram workshop.
