[This text has been translated electronically] Two pandemic years later, we long to finally celebrate the 25th Monrepos Open Air. After all you have also been waiting for a long time for the first encounter of the Festival Orchestra and conductor Alondra de la Parra, together with tenor Julian Prégardien. Unfortunately, the Mexican conductor has now had to cancel due to an acute injury. Nevertheless, from dreaming to high-spiritedness to the joy of dancing the musicians will perform a brilliant arc on this summer evening. Much patience and humor in challenging times during the creation of his 7th Symphony. Beethoven also displayed a great deal of patience and humor in challenging times during the creation of his 7th Symphony. At this time the composer was deafness, but nevertheless created a lively symphony in A major. in A major. Richard Wagner saw in it an »apotheosis of the dance« – in his In his eyes, the symphony was simply removed from the earthly. Rich sound images of Beethoven are combined with Arturo Márquez, Samuel Barber, and Paul Dukas, and with picturesque fireworks.

Your reserved seating and desired picnic seating will be available on the grounds beginning at 6pm. You may bring your own food and beverages. You can find more information in the Flyer. Feel free to make yourself comfortable!
