More open-air theater than ever in Rhein-Main

by drbyos

Vpostponed, postponed – canceled: it shouldn’t be like this again this summer. On the contrary. It almost feels a little creepy in the face of all the euphoria. Anyone who missed the theater should be amply compensated. Suddenly, theater is drawn to the fresh air that has never been experienced there before. The slogan is “Out into the open!”

In the Rhine-Main region and beyond, so much outdoor theater is likely to be staged this summer as never before. Not to mention hundreds of concerts, classical music such as jazz and pop, and open-air cinema evenings of all sizes. Hardly a day goes by without an open-air program being announced, a new venue for the open-air theater discovered or a new alliance of artists and organizers being forged who want to play in parks, courtyards and forecourts. You have to keep your eyes open to catch all of this; there are now all sorts of information campaigns on the Internet, with flyers, posters and in social media that indicate which theaters are performing where outdoors. This is also supported with funds. Where the arts literally found themselves in the rain in the long Corona months, you can now see the fruits of the federal, state and local programs and a lot of initiative.

If everything goes well and the corona infections do not rise again quickly, there will even be theater, opera and concerts in the big houses until July. A model experiment with tests and audience surveys is now running at the Mainz State Theater, which enables a much higher occupancy rate than the 100 people normally allowed. Most stages want to show at least a few of the premieres that have been developed for the season from June 11th.

“Into the outdoors!” Is the name of the funding program from which the Darmstadt State Theater also benefits.  Its terrace architecture is ideal for open-air games.

Most of the time, however, takes place outside. With the traditional open-air providers anyway, most of whom had to cancel in 2020. The Bad Vilbel Castle Festival had its first premiere, the family play “The Neverending Story”, in May without an audience, a few days later it was allowed to go into operation as the first stage. The Grimm Festival in Hanau is postponing its start and will play from July 1st to the end of August. The Bad Hersfeld Festival also begins on July 1st.
