Focal Points: in the 2022/23 season

Also, in the season 2022/23, the program will be characterized by numerous focal points, which we would like to introduce to you on the following pages. Artist portraits, a special cycle with Christian Thielemann and the focus on the composer Mark Andre can be found here, as well as our festival, which will take place this season under the title “Beethoven’s Medicine Spoon”. But there is much more to discover. We are looking forward to your visit!


After the success of the 2021/22 season, we have once again developed a number of artist portraits in the 2022/23 season, each showing the wide range artistic work for each of the artists portrayed.
