Behind the scenes at Immling

The Immling Festival is once again presenting top-class productions to look forward to this year. Such events are associated with a number of challenges and tasks, all of which Immling handles itself. A look behind the scenes reveals that a truly diverse range of professions are involved in making such a wonderful event as the Immling Festival possible. Of course, the first step is to design and build a stage that suits the production in question. Trades such as carpenters, electricians, painters, set designers and builders are based here. Of course, the singers don’t just need a stage on which they can slip into character, because what would they be without the right clothes and make-up? This is ensured by tailors and make-up artists who breathe life into the look and thus help the artists to become one with the role. And a singer without notes is like a fish without water. So to manage the grades and keep track of them, there are grade keepers. It continues with lighting technicians. They put the performances in the right light and sound engineers ensure that the musicals are an unforgettable listening experience. What also remains hidden from the audience at such a festival is the support provided to the artists. Only when they feel comfortable can they perform at their best. The artistic operations office ensures that rehearsals are coordinated, that the artists are in the right place at the right time and that they have a contact person for all matters.

And for visitors to find out about the program at all, the external communication must also be right: The marketing team and ticket office ensure the visibility of the festival and the opportunity to take part in it.

This year, music lovers can look forward to heavenly productions of the operas Aida, Roméo et Juliette and Die Dreigroschenoper at the Immling Festival. However, there is not only something for adults, but also for children and young people – the family opera “The Barber of Seville” and the musical “Fame” will be staged.
