Bregenz Music Festival
Founded in 1946, the Bregenz Music Festival, which is held annually in Bregenz, Austria, sees a variety of musical and theatrical displays performed over a series of venues. The main venue is a 7,000 seat open-air amphitheatre based on the shores of Lake Constance. Seebuhne, which is German for floating stage, has seen many mesmerising productions in recent years including Aida by Giuseppe Verdi and Tosca by Giacomo Puccini.
In addition to traditional musical performances, visitors to the Bregenz Music can witness world-renowned plays, such as those written by Shakespeare, transformed into magnificent opera displays. Previous years have seen wonderful performances such as Of Mice and Men, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Merchant of Venice.
