Greifensteine Natural Stage
During the summer months, the curtain falls at the Eduard von Winterstein Theatre in Annaberg-Buchholz and the ensemble moves outside to perform in front of a completely natural backdrop, the granite rocks of the Greifenstein Massif between Ehrenfriedersdorf and Geyer. Audience members both large and small can look forward every year to fairy tales, operettas and musical theatre performed outdoors. In 2010, the programme includes the return of plays such as “Der Bettelstudent” (“The Beggar Student”) and the premiere of “Heidi”. In addition to a wide range of theatre, there will also be films presented, when the nature stage becomes an outdoor cinema, and cowboys at the annual Country Open Air.
With seating for 15,000 persons, Saxony’s largest outdoor stage is located right in the middle of the wild and romantic Rockelmann Park. It has sufficient space to present all kinds of large events. The forest stage audience does not have to worry about becoming dizzy trying to see the stage. The amphitheatre-style concert arena has 30 metres of difference in height between the last row and the stage, so everyone has a good view. And some of the greats in the music business have already played here: Joe Cocker, Andre Rieu, Herbert Grönemeyer, Peter Maffay and stars of folk music.
