In the impressive Rheinsberg Heckentheater, Christoph Willibald Gluck's catchy opera tells the gripping prehistory of the Trojan War.

King Agamemnon is desperate. He is to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia - only then will the wind carry the Greek navy to Troy. Will he follow the commandment of the gods or will his love for his child prevail? Does he want to be a good father or a glorious warlord? But perhaps Iphigenia also has a say in the matter. And then there is her fiancé Achilles, perhaps the bravest of all heroes ...

Experience an unforgettable open-air experience in the atmospheric Heckentheater in Rheinsberg Castle Park: Gluck's "Iphigenia in Aulis" is impressive music theater full of human conflict. The ancient tragedy found its way into the here and now via the Enlightenment, where director Georg Quander reinterprets the myth. Alongside renowned soloists such as Vivica Genaux and Dietrich Henschel, you will experience the Berlin Ballet Company in superbly choreographed dance scenes on this evening!

Concerto Brandenburg performs under the musical direction of Werner Ehrhardt.
