Göttingen International Handel Festival 2018
In May each year, Göttingen celebrates Handel: For twelve days, Baroque fans from all over the world make a pilgrimage to the beautiful university town to worship the great composer George Frideric Handel.
From May 10 to 21, 2018 the Göttingen International Handel Festival takes place under the thematic heading ‘Conflicts’. The Festival will be illuminating and interpreting historical conflicts and their resolutions in musical terms. The opera production Arminio, the oratorio Judas Maccabaeus and numerous further concerts and events deal with that eternal opposing pair, ‘war and peace’.
