The Bregenz Festival takes place annually in Austria, the heart of Europe and one of the most culturally rich countries in the world. Directly on the shore of the mighty Lake Constance you will experience a world-famous cultural festival, the stage of which gives an impressive view of the Austrian Alps. Experience a unique combination of nature and the Bregenz Festival. Culture, Entertainment & amp; Relaxation and tradition & amp; Modern. The event location at the lake, the largest and the world's largest floating stage, already made it possible for Daniel Craig to make an exciting chase in the bond film "A Quantum of Solace".
The spectacular stage sets on the floating stage are particularly impressive, surpassing themselves year after year and many years ago becoming a figurehead of the Bregenz Festival. Coordinated with the surrounding landscape and the unique location on the lake, in summer you direct the view of the shore and the performances taking place there. Worthy of special mention are the extraordinary stage constructions such as the high tower for Richard Wagner's "Flying Dutchman" (1989/90) and the huge eye for Giacomo Puccini's "Tosca" (2007/08), which went down in the history of the Bregenz Festival.
The floating stage on the shores of Lake Constance is the largest floating stage in the world. Around 7,000 visitors find space on the grandstand to attend the Bregenz Festival and other top-class events. Around 185,000 visitors are expected annually, of which 162,000 have tickets for the main stage on the lake. The unique ambience ensures a very special cultural experience, with the performance of the performers and musicians in the foreground. Because one thing is certain: the expectations on the world's largest floating stage are enormous every year.
Also in 2020 the opera "Rigoletto" by Giuseppe Verdi from 1851 thrilled guests at Lake Constance. “Rigoletto” is Verdi's first masterpiece and has been the former composer's most popular piece for decades. The opera tells the story of the court jester of the same name in the Palace of the Duke of Mantua, in which Rigoletto amuses himself about the revealing life of his Duke and mocks his victim until his own daughter becomes a victim of the Duke of Mantua.
