Ekhof Festival

Performing Arts in Gotha

This popular festival re-animates the private theatre built for the Dukes of Saxe-Gotha in their monumental baroque Schloss Friedenstein. For two months in summer the public gets the chance to test its acoustics during classical recitals, and to see the original stage machinery (perhaps the oldest of its type surviving in working order) come to life during theatrical productions.
