Bregenz Festival

A cultural Highlight

Visiting the Bregenz Festival is an unforgettable experience. Every year culture enthusiasts from all over the world flock to the largest floating stage in the world located at Bregenz on Lake Constance. And justifiably so: a perfect performance in an unique natural setting can only be described as awe-inspiring.

Again with Madame Butterfly a special highlight takes place, when the stage setting, which is quite gray during the day, awakes in the evening. At the Bregenz Festival also shown this year: Siberia by Umberto Giordano. This and further programme points of the Bregenz Festival can be reached from Hotel Allgäu Sonne in less than 40 minutes.

Siberia by Umberto Giordano

Umberto Giordano sketches the powerful and dense action, the lively emotionality of the characters and the imposing choir in his Italian opera Siberia in the style of Verismo. Fascinating Russian sounds are embedded in the gripping music. For Giordano, the opera is a universal human drama: “Love and pain have no nationality."
