Current information on tickets purchased for the Handel Festival 2020

Due to the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Handel Festival Halle (Saale) 2020, which was to take place from 29 May to 14 June, had to be cancelled due to force majeure. Ticket purchasers can return their already purchased tickets from the beginning of June to 30 September 2020 or donate them to the Halle (Saale) Handel Festival.

Possibility of making a donation
You are very welcome to donate the tickets you have purchased for the continuation of the Handel Festival.
