2021 Handel Festival


Still a year later, a round affair: this is the Göttingen International Handel Festival 2021. With the kick-off on August 25, 2021 in the Basilica of St. Cyriakus, Duderstadt, long, often anxious months of waiting will come to an end. For the participating artists. For us as the Festival team. But above all for you, our dear audience. "Finally a cause for celebration!" - as it says on the cover of this year's programme preview, which is available for download here. And there is plenty of reason to celebrate: We will be able to present most of the events already planned for 2020 despite the mandatory cultural hiatus, and exciting new productions will be added. It is thus beyond doubt that we will be celebrating our major, milestone anniversary from September 9 to 19, 2021 - and we are pleased to invite you to join us! Advance ticket sales begin on July 16, 2021 - one week earlier exclusively for members of the Göttinger Händel-Gesellschaft e.V.

Everything keeps flowing in the (data) stream

Our "Digital Festival 2021" has come to an end, but celebrations can continue: all Festival concerts can still be streamed until September 19, 2021. Take your pick, buy your ticket – and indulge in top-class events! It is our pleasure to invite you.

Digital exhibition on Handel

Since May 25, Die Gesänge der Ptolemäer (The Songs of the Ptolemies), a digital exhibition created by the Department for Egyptology and Coptology at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, has been "sounding out". With the subtitle, "Perception of Egypt in the operas of George Frideric Handel", it is yet another highlight worth viewing that will also help shorten the wait until September for you and us both. The opening video is now available on @haendelfest, the YouTube channel of the Göttingen International Handel Festival.

Best wishes,

Your team of the Göttingen International Handel Festival
