For 50 years, music lovers have been experiencing very special moments in a unique atmosphere at Amerang Castle.
The success story began on 12th of June 1965, when the very first concert took place in the magnificent arcaded inner courtyard of Amerang Castle with more than 200 visitors and beautiful weather. Since 1969, concerts may also take place even when the weather is not as good. And it was in the same year that for the first time, a classic play was performed at Amerang Castle. In 1974, the opera premiere with “Camerata musicale” was celebrated.
So, no wonder, that the castel concerts quickly became an insider’s tip.
Against the tendency towards a “modern director’s theatre” Amerang Castle offers opera performances for the audience, with classic stage direction and classic costumes for new generations. The orchestra’s score is elaborately reduced according to the available space, while fantastic young voices of various countries fill the historic place with grand opera tradition.
Celebration year 2015! Besides the 50-years anniversary of the castle concerts, there are also others joining the party: 50 years Kodály Quartet, 40 years Mozart Soloists of Salzburg, 15 years Klazz Brothers, 35 years Grassauer Brass Players and the 50th anniversary of Max Müller.
Besides many concerts, the anniversary program offers the operas Rigoletto, Die Zauberflöte, La Traviata and Tosca.
Experience unique opera tradition and enjoy enchanting moments in an intimte and very personal atmosphere. Your hosts, Family von Crailsheim-Larisch, is looking forward to welcoming you!
