Bayreuth Baroque is on!
BAYREUTH BAROQUE opens as planned with the premiere of Nicola Antonio Porporas Carlo il Calvo on September 3rd at the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth. The festival program ends on September 13th with the second performance of Leonardo Vinci's Gismondo, Re di Polonia.
To provide both our visitors and our artists with a first-class baroque art experience, BAYREUTH BAROQUE has developed a comprehensive plan to ensure our audiences’ safety. This includes the state-of-the-art air-conditioning system, a “choreographed” entrance and exit of the auditorium and large outdoor areas for use during the intervals. These rules were developed with the support of an external team of experts; the latest information on the situation can be received via our newsletter. Artistic Director Max Emanuel Cencic has requested that all our visitors and musicians, excluding singers and wind-players, should wear facemasks during performances. In this way, BAYREUTH BAROQUE hopes to ensure, a musical experience, free of health concerns.
