Pentecost Festival at Ettersburg Palace

Theatre - concerts - literature - philosophy

The aesthetic-intellectual history and the creative aura of this sociable venue are combined in this festival, creating an ambitious and diverse programme. Theatre, readings, early and classical music, Lieder, hits, jazz, soul, pop and experimental music can be experienced in the theatre hall of the Old Palace, the room that has been called the "Weapon Hall" since Carl August's day, the baroque "White Hall" or the "Palace Church". "Crossover" is understood here as being imbedded into the unusual history of the venue, both the supporting and the burdening aspects, as an interaction between the Classical period, the Silver Age, the present, challenge, experience, event and entertainment.
