Kurt Weill Festival Dessau
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
The motto of the 28th Kurt Weill Festival in 2020 is “What are borders”?
As always, our main spotlight is on the life and artistic legacy of Kurt Weill. But thirty years after the reunification of Germany and at a time when barriers are being thrown up rather than coming down, we wish to examine the ambivalent concept of the border, here in the city of Dessau in Saxony-Anhalt. What are borders? Political, artistic, social and personal boundaries? Once again, our programme features many exciting and wonderful artists, whose performances stir not only the soul but also the mind.
In 2020 our Artist-in-Residence is the successful young actor and singer Vladimir Korneev. Join us in welcoming this captivating entertainer whose uniquely intelligent and highly emotional interpretations have conquered the hearts of audiences everywhere. Other star guests include Rolando Villazón, Julia Engelmann, Thomas Quasthoff, Martina Gedeck, Tim Fischer, Barrie Kosky, The Airport Society, the MDR Symphony Orchestra, and many more exciting artists.
But most of all we are looking forward to you, our audience! Our heartfelt thanks go to the city of Dessau-Roßlau and the state of Saxony-Anhalt as well as to our numerous partners, sponsors and patrons, without whose generous and reliable commitment we would not be able to present such a diverse programme.
