Alondra de la Parra Musical Direction

Two pandemic years later, we finally long to celebrate the 25th Monrepos Open Air. After all, you have also been waiting for the first meeting of the Festival Orchestra and conductor Alondra de la Parra, together with tenor Julian Prégardien. On this summer evening, the musicians will take you on a brilliant journey from dreaming to being cocky to the joy of dancing. Beethoven also displayed a great deal of patience and humour in challenging times during the composition of his 7th Symphony. The composer was already heavily burdened by his deafness at this time but created a lively symphony in A major. Richard Wagner saw in it an »apotheosis of the dance« - in his eyes, Beethoven removed the Symphony from the earthly. Rich sound images of Beethoven are combined with Arturo Márquez, Samuel Barber, and Paul Dukas and with picturesque fireworks.


You can take your booked seats and preferred picnic places on the grounds from 6 pm. You may bring your own food and drinks. Feel free to make yourself comfortable!
