The düsseldorf festival is one thing above all: a big celebration! Open to everyone and everything. MUSIC – THEATRE – DANCE – NEW CIRCUS … Everything is in motion, is rarely what it seems and yet often strangely familiar. Perhaps the festival’s appeal lies in the way it presents things one might have experienced before in a new light on stage and in new combinations of sounds, continuing to create moments of surprise in its 28th year. Our guests are artists acclaimed around the world who are appearing in Germany for the first time. Or they are ambassadors for our own region that is so rich in culture. What we wish for from the audience is: come in large numbers! And let yourselves be moved, touched, inspired, amazed and enchanted!
