2020 Heidelberger Frühling cancelled

March 13th, 2020

Dear audience,

It is with the greatest regret that we have to inform you that the events* of the Heidelberger Frühling 2020 planned for 21.03. to 24.04. have been cancelled. This decision follows from a corresponding general decree of the city of Heidelberg to take action against the spread of the coronavirus in the city and region.

Your already purchased tickets will be fully refunded. We have summarized information about this in this mail (see below).

We have hoped until the last minute to be able to carry out the festival as planned and at the same time to comply with the protective measures for you, dear audience, as well as the artists, as prescribed in Germany. We could no longer reliably guarantee this protection. The internationality of the arriving artists, ensembles and guests brings with it the danger of accelerating the spread of the virus. Furthermore, the multitude of contact possibilities poses a threat to a part of our audience, but also to the artistic guests.

We therefore ask for your understanding and would be pleased if you remain with us. The next “spring” is definitely coming!

Take care!

Best regards and all the best to you,
Thorsten Schmidt
Festival director

*Exceptions are the concert of the Heidelberg Philharmonic Orchestra on April 22nd and Bach’s Easter and Ascension Oratorio on the same evening. These events will take place until further notice – Heidelberger Frühling is not the organizer.
