Tyrolean festival Erl

26.12.2015 - 6.1.2016 | 7. - 31.7.2016

Festivals on green meadows, opera glamour in front of mountain chains, international flair in rural surroundings: the Tyrolean Festival in Erl unites contrasts. A must for all Wagnerians is the Tyrolean Erl Festival, today well-known beyond the borders: it takes place annually in summer and in winter under the artistic direction of Maestro Gustav Kuhn in the newly built and architecturally attractive festival hall.


The Tyrolean Festival Erl, founded in 1997 by Gustav Kuhn, has, since 1998, taken place every year for 25 days in July in Erl Passion Play House. In December 2012 along with the tradition alvenue for the festival, a new, winterfestival play house was opened. Here, a fortnight-long winter season takes place at the turn of the year. However, from 2014 the building will also be used as an alternative venue for the Passion Play House in the summer.



Zwischen/Zeit in the festival hall 2015/2016


The "Zwischen/Zeit" announced by the Tyrolean festival Erl is the time between the two festivals, in which the festival hall doesn't just sit empty but rather offers a space for art, music projects and the (further) development of regional musical styles within an international context.




Winter festival - 26.12.2015 bis 6.1.2016


The fourth winter season starts on December 26th, 2015, and offers an extensive concert and opera program. Opera lovers can look forward to Rossini's "The Barber of Seville" and the revival of Verdi's "Nabucco" with its famous prisoners' chorus. For the first time the concert series is being expanded with a New Year's Eve and New Year's Day concert, as well as a concert on December 30th, 2015. Exceptional highlights are created by the Acies string quartet with works by Mozart and Janáček, plus harmonica virtuoso Gianluca Littera with an evening of jazz and world music. Musicbanda Franui once again appears live, and is sure to play to a full house. The live music of Daniel Schnyder provides a soundtrack to the silent movie classic "Faust" from 1926 at a film concert. And as the crowning glory of the winter season, Jasminca Stančul will interpret Beethoven's piano concerto No. 1 in C major from Webern's "Six pieces for large orchestra, op. 6" and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E minor.



Summer festival - 7. bis 31.7.2016


Tyrolean culture summer begins annually with the Tyrolean festival Erl. It's already clear that the Tyrolean festival Erl in 2016 will once again be as successful as the previous summer festivals have been.



The Ring of the Nibelung


Once again in 2016 the international Wagner community is looking forward to the Erl Ring cycle - in exactly the form which it was originally composed for but which is hardly performed anywhere else in the world: On four consecutive days. Naturally with English subtitles. Be quick if you want to be a part of it. In 2016 there will probably only be one Ring cycle.
