More details of the place of event


Music and theatre lovers can look forward to the NEW BURGFESTSPIELE in Meißen again in 2021, from 12 to 27 June 2021. Visitors can expect a colourful round of concerts, operas, revues and plays in the historic courtyard of Albrechtsburg Castle.

Many of the performances planned for 2020 will take place in the coming summer.

Among other things, visitors can see and experience the award-winning film "Gundermann" with actor Alexander Scheer and director Andreas Dresen. The band around Alexander Scheer and Andreas Dresen, which was founded especially for the film, will provide lasting concert experiences.
In addition, visitors will be enchanted by the cathedral choirs of Meissen and Naumburg, the romantic opera "Der Freischütz", film melodies presented by the Elblandphilharmonie as well as the legendary brass quintet Harmonic Brass.

In addition to music, there will also be entertaining summer theatre in 2021, with plays such as "Däschdlmäschdl auf Sächsisch" and a continuation of the "Jedermann" series.

Under the title "Geh aus mein Herz und suche Freud" (Go out my heart and seek joy), the NEW BURGFESTSPIELE 2021 will come to a crowning conclusion on 27 June with the Dresden Boys' Choir.

Tickets can now be purchased here (until 24 December there is also a 20% discount on all gift vouchers):
