June 7 - July 29, 2018
In three venues, the public of Heidelberger Schlossfestspielen can expect a diverse theater and concert program.
High above the city of Heidelberg realms world’s most popular ruin. Is there any place more beautiful in this world than between the historic walls of the castle beneath the shining stars during a warm summer night? For sure, there is! Just this place, but filled with music and dramatic or funny works of literature.
The famous Germans story of the young orphaned girl Heidi who joins her grandfather’s house up the mountain in the Suisse Alps will be presented as a play for children (6 years and older) and their families. A fascinating story about friendship and the warm and charming personality of a child.
„If I Were a Rich Man” is what imagines the milkman Tevye in the musical Anatevka. Would he stay in Heidelberg forever if he were rich? Maybe. The popular musical will be presented in German language. The public can expect Russian and Jewish melodies within the beautiful setting of the historic walls.
A further highlight of this year’s program, also in the big yard, will be Carlo Goldoni’s Servant of Two Masters, directed by theater director Holger Schultze. A servant hires in two positions at a time and is facing a lot of trouble. How is solves this pell-mell in the end can be seen this summer in Heidelberg.
Moreover, the philharmonic orchestra will present exclusive concerts with international top-class artists and young upcoming stars.
Come, visit our summer festival, and experience theater and music art in the most beautiful way: having a view over Heidelberg.
The pre-sales have started.
