Elbphilharmonie launches ticket sales
Sales of tickets for concerts in the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle can be purchased from Tuesday (May 26, 2020) after subscription sales began on April 29. Christoph Lieben-Seutter, General Director of the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle gave a preview of the 2020/21 season programme featuring world-famous orchestras, top composers, resident artists and a wide range of regional musicians last week.
Buy risk-free tickets
Customers can book tickets and pay later in case the corona crisis prompts the cancellation of a concert. Tickets must be paid for only when the concert actually takes place and at the latest six weeks before the respective date. The 2020/2021 programme features the composers György Kurtág and Thomas Adès, and artists such as violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and pianist Daniil Trifonov.
Hamburg – a city of music
The Elbphilharmonie Sommer will not go ahead owing to the pandemic. Organisers now hope that the opening of HamburgMusik on September 2 and 3, 2020 will go ahead as planned. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is then due to perform its first concert after a six-month hiatus. Visitors can also look forward to 40 international orchestras in the next season including the Vienna Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra and to debuts by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra at the Elbphilharmonie.
New "opera house"
The Elbphilharmonie has frequently and erroneously been dubbed Hamburg's new opera house as the Grand Hall is ideally suited for concerts and operas. Next season, the conductor René Jacobs will bring Beethoven's original version of "Leonore" of Fidelio to the stage and the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester will perform "Orpheus in the Underworld" by Jacques Offenbach on New Year's Eve. Fans of piano music can look forward to five performances by Daniil Trifonov while Russian music, jazz or modern art enthusiasts will get their money's worth in the new season.
