Your information on the Handel Festival

The press kits give you an overview of the Handel Festival in Halle. You will learn interesting facts about the current programme, the thematic focus, the first and world premieres as well as the highlights and much more.

The press kit is usually published twice, each time with minor revisions.
The first publication takes place at the start of advance ticket sales and the programme presentation in November/December and the second publication takes place at the opening press conference on the first day of the Festival in May/June. Press representatives are cordially invited to all press conferences.
