Unexpected musical experiences and personal encounters are trademarks of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The festival programme includes a broad range of series and »festivals within the festival«, where visitors can discover and focus on particular elements through a wide range of supplementary activities such as guided tours, listening experiments, artist talks and discussions over several days.
Promising young artists from all over the world present themselves in the series »Junge Elite« and »Bothmer-Musik«. The »Landpartie« invites you to a musical excursion to the countryside. And the »Grenzgänge« format takes you into the young jazz scene. Discover more about our various Festspiel elements here.
For an entire week, the focus is on the most important composer of Viennese Classicism: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In addition to the Preisträger in Residence Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, the Armida Quartet, the pianist Kit Armstrong and the Landesjugendorchester Mecklenburg-Vorpommern will devote themselves to the Salzburg prodigy. With »Mythos Mozart-Geige« at Schloss Ulrichshusen, the classical music festival brings one of the most legendary instruments to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for the first time.
