It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful open-air stages in the world. The ruins of this abbey church are so stunning that they were used for theatre performances only a short time after the 1761 fire that devastated the building. The modern-day festival in the Hessian town of Bad Hersfeld was launched in 1951. Since that date, at least four plays or musicals have been performed in the ruins each summer – and the erection of a covered stand has allowed the show to go on whatever the weather.
Highlights of the 2014 programme include Maria Stuart, Don Quijote and the musical Kiss me Kate.
