Gewandhaus Leipzig Announces Reopening Program

By Francisco Salazar

The Gewandhaus Leipzig will reopen for the months of June and July for its annual summer festival.

The theater announced that there will be 19 one-hour concert programs that will follow Germany’s new regulations of only 80 audience members. Each concert will be performed twice so as many people can see the concerts. Tickets will be between 20 to 50 euros. 

The festival begins on June 7 and will feature the Gewandhaus-Quartett, Daniel Ciobanu, Gewandhaus-Bläserquintett, Artemis Quartett, Reinhard Goebel, and Andris Nelsons, among others.

Programs will include music by Beethoven, Mozart, R. Strauss, Bartók, Debussy, Schumann, and Mendelssohn, among others.

The Gewandhaus Leipzig is the latest concert hall to announce its reopening with a limited audience following the Staatstheater Wiesbaden Oper Frankfurt, Konzerthaus Wien, and the Musikveirein Wien’s similar initiatives.

The summer festival will run through July 12.
