2020 Handel Festival

Anniversary Festival Postponed

Dear Festival friends,

The Federal Government and the Ministry of Health of Lower Saxony have urgently recommendedsuspending all events until further notice. This is why, with a heavy heart, we have to postpone the Göttingen International Handel Festival 2020. 

More about this from the Managing Director Tobias Wolff in the video:

You can also download the statement as pdf.

For the protection of our employees, we will be closing the Festival office for the time being up to and including April 17.
For urgent matters we are at your disposal in the following ways: Artists and others involved in the Festival can contact the Head of the Artistic Office Antje Michael (amichael@haendel-festspiele.de). In urgent cases you can reach the Festival management by e-mail at info@haendel-festspiele.de. Please address press enquiries to Maren Lippke-Spöcker (mlippke@haendel-festspiele.de). We ask for your understanding that it may take some time to answer your requests.

As soon as the Festival Office has resumed its regular operations, the staff will also be available to answer questions about ticket cancellations. Until then, we kindly asks to refrain from making enquiries as they cannot be processed due to the closure of the office. Please understand that we are currently available primarily to our artists and other festival contributors.

Best wishes,

Your team at the Göttingen International Handel Festival
