William Tell Open-Air Theatre

There has probably never been a theatre in Switzerland that has enjoyed such success, summer after summer, with the same play for so many years. The fascinatingly realistic backdrop and action-packed scenes really raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

The tradition of the William Tell Open-Air Theatre in Interlaken began in 1912. Since then, Friedrich Schiller's play "William Tell" has been performed from 1912 to 1914, from 1931 to 1939 and every year since 1947, in the Rugen woods in Matten. Performances were only interrupted during the two world wars.

St.Gallen Festival

Seit dem Sommer 2006 erleben die St.Galler Festspiele eine erfolgreiche Saison nach der anderen. Die einmalige Verbindung von Tanz, herrlichem barockem Raum der Kathedrale und sakraler Musik lassen das Theater zu einem unverzichtbaren Bestandteil der etablierten Festspielagenda werden.

Every year in June or July, the monastery courtyard with its magnificent baroque cathedral in the St.Gallen Abbey District is transformed into an opera setting. And this is where the St.Gallen Festival takes place.

Castle Opera

Das einmalige Konzept der Schlossoper Haldenstein, das zur Förderung des musikalischen Nachwuchses dient, ist eine Initiative des künstlerischen Leiters Marcus Bosch. Inzwischen hat er sich und dem Konzept auf internationalem Parkett einen Namen verschafft.

In 2001, an open-air opera was performed for the first time in the incomparable atmosphere of Haldenstein Castle. The initiative came from Marcus Bosch, the artistic director, who has meanwhile made a name for himself on the international stage.
