children's concert aboard
Rostock cruise company AIDA Cruises has extended its partnership with the classical
music festival Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for another period of three
years. The new sponsorship agreement secures AIDA's involvement as the main
sponsor up to and including 2021. This means that the two partners'
collaboration will by then cover a total of 20 seasons.
are delighted and proud to have already been the long-standing and reliable
partner of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern since 2002. With our
continuous involvement, we are making a contribution to the further development
of our state's cultural landscape," says Felix Eichhorn, President of AIDA
Cruises, explaining the lengthy partnership.
Dr. Markus Fein, Director of the Festspiele
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, is very pleased that the collaboration has been extended.
"AIDA is a perfect partner for the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. We share
a common approach in combining internationality with strong regional roots."
During the summer 2019 festival season, AIDA will
be the patron for one of this year's highlights: the grand-scale Open Air to
mark Rostock Zoo's 120th anniversary. The German Chamber Orchestra of Berlin will be giving an open-air performance of Camille Saint-Saëns' "Carnival
of the Animals" on August 25, 2019. This concert experience will be rounded off
with a reading by Katja Riemann, as well as with works by Strauss, Rossini, and
partners' program also includes a children's concert in an unusual venue. An
AIDA ship in Rostock-Warnemünde will provide the stage for a magnificent show before
a young audience. Last year, around 200 children from nine school classes from
Rostock and the local region were enthralled by Gabor Vosteen's flute concert.
