In 2018, Halle an der Saale will once again be the scene of a glittering Handel Festival. Under the title “Foreign Worlds”, during the 17 days of the festival (Mmy 25 – June 10) more than 100 events are scheduled, including a new production of the opera “Berenice, Regina d’Egitto, HWV 38,” at Halle Opera. There will also be events in meaningful places throughout the city, like the church where Handel was baptized, and a cathedral where he was an organist.

This ongoing countrywide celebration is part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage. The first Handel Festival in Halle Halle an der Saale was conducted in 1922 and then since 1952 the festival has been organized annually. The program includes Handel’s best-known works as well as some wonderful rediscoveries and new works, so don’t miss it.
