With the yearly recurring Operetta Summer in Kufstein, a classical highlight of light music was first introduced at that time to western Austria. This event boasts a unique venue with the Kufstein fortress serving as a covered event location known as the "festungsarena". With this summer cultural event in 2021, cultural life will return to the city with artists of the renowned Vienna Volksoper and once again transform the festungsarena into a stage.
Between July 30 and August 15, 2021, the musical "Evita" will be performed under the direction and choreography of Enrique Gasa Valga. The unmistakable music of Baron Andrew Lloyd Webber paired with texts by Tim Rice, who achieved a breakthrough as a songwriter with "Jesus Christ Superstar", looks back on the life of Argentinian María Eva Duarte de Perón. As a hit in theaters in 1996 with lead roles played by Madonna, Antonio Banderas, and Jonathan Pryce, Evita has touched the heart of many people. The Vienna Volksoper ensemble and Hotel Stadt Kufstein work hard to ensure that you won't soon forget an incredible musical experience in Kufstein.
