For the first-ever time in the history of the Easter Festival, the event will not take place at its usual time, but this coming autumn. After long, detailed deliberations, Christian Thielemann, the Artistic Director of the Festival and Chief Conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden and Intendant Nikolaus Bachler have decided to move the Festival from the Easter weekend to the weekend of All Saints, 29 October to 1 November 2021. The precise programme will be made known in May 2021.

The detailed programme will be published in May 2021, along with information on how to purchase tickets. Tickets already bought for Easter 2021 will no longer be valid and will be rescinded. You can find further information on reimbursing tickets here.
