“A mistress stood by the sea / sighing long and anxiously. / She was so deeply stirred / By the setting sun”, Heinrich Heine begins his famous poem “A mistress stood by the sea” and follows with: “My Fräulein! Be gay, / This is an old play; / ahead of you it sets / And from behind it returns.” – This year, the Handel Festival is also devoted to this return of the sun, or more precisely: to the sunrise on the horizon, at 5 o'clock in the morning at Seeburger Lake. Anna Torge and Michael Freimuth welcome you into the day - with quietly contemplative music by George Frideric Handel, Domenico Scarlatti and their contemporaries. A unique experience!

Breakfast included. A bus transfer to the venue can be booked separately when purchasing tickets!
