The 2022 Baden-Baden Easter Festival ended on Easter Monday (April 18, 2022) with a last, highly acclaimed performance of Tchaikovsky’s opera “Pique Dame” and great visitor interest. The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and the Berliner Philharmoniker announce that the festival will continue in the partnership that has existed since 2013 until 2025. There is also an option for further joint festivals in Baden-Baden afterwards.

“The joint plans for the future are fantastic news for the Festspielhaus, the city of Baden-Baden and the entire region,” said Benedikt Stampa, Intendant of the Festspielhaus. “We are very pleased that the Berliner Philharmoniker and their chief conductor Kirill Petrenko feel at home with us and that the audience can continue to benefit from this. A big thank you goes to our donors and sponsors, who make further planning possible in the first place.”

“Grateful for what has already been achieved”

The artistic director of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Andrea Zietzschmann, said: “We look forward to more years of working with Benedikt Stampa and his team from the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and are grateful for what has already been achieved. The Easter Festival in Baden-Baden will continue to be the festival at which the Berlin Philharmonic and its chief conductor Kirill Petrenko perform exclusively in a scenic opera in the Graben. In addition, we offer a wide range of programs with chamber concerts, participation projects, symphony concerts with great conductors and soloists as well as the opportunity to experience Kirill Petrenko in concert with our godchildren from the National Youth Orchestra.”
