OPENING NIGHT: 1, 2, OR 3 OUT OF 21
Sumptuous orchestral music and avant-garde jazz rhythms? Why not! Angelic vocals and exquisite chamber music? It works! Renowned stars and up and coming young musicians? No problem! New and rare as well as famous and entertaining? Of course! Why? Because the opening night is a condensed version of the entire festival programme, offering a representative combination and juxtaposition of classical music and jazz, Orient and Occident, opulent splendour and intricate gems. Just follow your instinct and decide whether you want to enjoy one, two or three concerts from this enticing mix. And while enchanting sounds seduce you in the concerts, lighting designer Christian Weißkircher will make all the venues around Bremen's "gute Stube" magically light up, illuminating the festive mood perfectly!
HOW IT WORKS
In ten venues around the market square, two concerts of 45 minutes each will take place in three time slots, while in our main festival hall the Glocke there will be three concerts. All venues have two common intervals for spontaneous encounters and thought provoking conversations with other festivalgoers. Single tickets for each concert can be booked at the standard price of 30 euros. So you can decide for yourself whether you want to attend one, two or three concerts for the festival’s opening night!
