Competition for Directing Teams
In 1920, music enthusiasts, resident in Göttingen brought Handel’s operas back to life, setting in motion an initiative that is known worldwide as the ‘Göttingen Handel Renaissance’. In 2020, the Göttingen International Handel Festival will present the opera Rodelinda, which started the whole tradition of the Festival one century ago. We strive to once again give new impulses to the staging of Handel to inspire future productions.
With this in mind, we are delighted to announce our
competition for young directing teams!
Are you younger than 35 years of age and have you already
gained some initial experience as a director, choreographer,
set designer or costume designer?
Then apply now!
Applications close on March 25, 2019.
For further information feel free to contact Tobias Wolff, Managing Director.

As a main prize, you will be given the chance to direct the opera Rodelinda, with a top-class cast consisting of internationally renowned soloists, the FestspielOrchester Göttingen, and the Artistic Director of the Festival Laurence Cummings. We are expecting international media attention as well as live broadcasts on the radio and television. The production will subsequently be included in the repertoire of the Oldenburgisches Staatstheater.
