Friends of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival e.V.

The Festival Friends of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are the lifeblood of the festival. More than 2000 members have supported the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern since the very beginning. And their enthusiasm is contagious: the circle of members grows from year to year, creating a community of like-minded people who are especially connected and committed to the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
