Dear friends of the Zurich Festival
The next edition of the Zurich Festival will take place from the 13th of June to the 13th of July 2014 and will be dedicated to the theme of „Prometheus“. A performance of Luigi Nonos epoch-making work „Prometeo“ at the Tonhalle Zürich will be at the centerpiece of the festival.
The complete Festival Programme will be available here in March 2014.
The Zurich Festival is looking back to a successful season 2013.
From the 14th of June to the 14th of July, the Zurich Festival put Richard Wagner’s Zurich years in the spotlight in celebration of his 200th birthday with a programme of events based around the theme “Wagner Greenhouse”. The line-up included musical theatre, opera, plays, concerts, exhibitions, debates and much more. With over 150 events taking place in 31 venues in the city of Zurich, the Festival reached a public of 74’000.
A retrospective of the Zurich Festival 2013 can be found here (press release in German).
We are looking forward to welcoming you again in 2014!
