2020 Handel Festival
100 Years | 42 Operas | 1 Programme
Dear Festival friends,
We have already presented the programme for the 100th anniversary of the Göttingen International Handel Festival in September last year, and advance ticket sales are in full swing. The first event is already waiting for you on February 23, when not only the special exhibition ‘Händel_Göttingen_1920’ will be opened, but also the concert ‘Rodelinde_1920: Aus der Bearbeitung von Oskas Hagen’ will take you on a journey to the beginnings of the Festival
On the whole, all 42 opera titles by the baroque composer George Frideric Handel await you in our anniversary programme - as staged and concert performances, crossover and chamber concerts, as dance arrangements and readings, as Festival recordings on the big cinema screen and on the internet. On this website you will find all important information about our Festival programme. In addition, we proudly present the recently published Festival Magazine on the occasion of our 100th anniversary, which not only presents the complete programme. It also invites you to browse and read with many memories from past Festivals, pictures, interviews and much more. In the service section you can order your personal copy free of charge or download it as a pdf file.
But for now we hope you will enjoy exploring our programme. Join us in looking forward to exciting new discoveries, a joyous reunion with old friends, and a look into the future of our Festival, in short: a unique Festival experience in 2020.
Your team at the Göttingen International Handel Festival
