Why Attend Bregenz Festival?

Seated in the open air amphitheatre at twilight on the shoreline of Lake Constance you’ll experience a true marvel in stage design: the Seebühne, or floating stage

For one of the most impressive sundowners of your life, the Bregenz Festival of performing arts in Austria proudly presents La donna è mobile - the most famous aria from Giuseppe Verdi's opera Rigoletto

A huge jester's head juts out of Lake Constance. His calm face can morph from leering woman hater to screaming grimace. The ruffled collar he wears serves as a playground for a group of high spirited party goers. As if by magic, the jester can move his right hand, the bottom of a giant balloon gripped in his left. The Giuseppe Verdi opera is performed on a striking set created by Philipp Stölzl and Heike Vollmer, moving between spine-tingling spectacle and intimate chamber drama. 

Movie buffs amongst the 7,000 strong audience and last year's 228,000 visitors will recall the scene in James Bond, Quantum of Solace where Daniel Craig, perched atop a huge mechanical eye, desperately searches for his seat, having arrived fashionably late to a performance of Tosca..

Summertime in Europe is all about losing yourself at festivals and finding the meaning of life during late, balmy sunsets, a Romantic notion which happens to be the speciality of Bregenz Festival’s innovative curators who in 1946 parked two barges at the lakes edge in what would become the first incarnation of the now epic floating stage.

However, Bregenz Festival is more than just a mind-bending, logistical masterpiece of a floating stage - it lays on a feast for every sense ranging from the classics, to contemporary twists on Rigoletto, to obscure and rarely performed concerts

There’s also intimate poetry readings, backstage tours and cross-culture workshops designed to awaken the inner thespian in children and adults.
