Pressmeddelande   •   Mar 28, 2013 13:45 CET

Drottningholms Slottsteater, near Stockholm, is hosting one of the highlights of the Baltic Sea Festival in August. Through a new partnership with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Mozart's The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) will be presented in a fully staged performance at Drottningholm Slottsteater August 26 and 27.

This production of the Magic Flute was created by the orchestra's Music Director Daniel Harding and tenor Andrew Staples, and has previously been presented at the prestigious Lucerne festival in Switzerland.

“After ten successful years, the Baltic Sea Festival is – to say the least – alive and well; with this year’s festival we proudly present a range of new collaborations and world-class musical experiences,” says Michael Tydén, head of Berwaldhallen and co-founder of the Festival.

“It is a unique collaboration we have initiated,” says Sofi Lerström, CEO of Drottningholms Slottsteater. “It is the first time the since the mid 1960's that the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra will play at the theatre along with outstanding Swedish and international artists. We hope this collaboration will be a pleasurable, enriching experience for both our own audience and Berwaldhallen’s, and that it will attract many new visitors both to the theatre and the Baltic Sea Festival.”

Music, environment, and leadership
Several seminars will be held during the week around the three mainstays of the festival: music, the environment, and leadership. A new collaboration has been initiated with the Raoul Wallenberg Academy, which devotes itself to young leadership; it will hold a seminar on the theme “One person can make a difference”.
