Opera Festival Bayreuth Baroque
In 2020, the International Opera Festival BAYREUTH BAROQUE will start at the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth. Since the historical renovation of the Margravial Opera House, it was a great desire of the city of Bayreuth to initiate a baroque festival. Opened in 1748 and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2012, the opera house has become a reviving venue for rarely played operas from the early music period.
The appointed artistic director for the next three years is countertenor, director and producer Max Emanuel Cencic. The first edition will take place from 3 September till 13 September 2020. Two opera productions are planned each season, as well as concerts with world-class artists.
