The big dance: Sylvain Èmard’s “Le Grand Continental” at the end of the season last weekend on the forecourt of St. Pölten’s Festspielhaus.

Bbelow it was. It was loud. And it was also breathtaking, the final party at the end of the season and to say goodbye to Brigitte Fürle.

We danced to warm up. And outside, on the forecourt of St. Pölten’s Festspielhaus. 130 children, women and men from young to old and from dresses to sneakers swung their hips and swayed their arms, clapped, snapped and danced (in the middle: the courageous artistic director) to the coolest music, to which one wanted to join in right away.

Inside, there was the Grand Decoration of Honor in Gold for the outgoing artistic director – and the European premiere of “Beethoven 9” in an acrobatic artistic interpretation of the Australian Circa Contemporary Circus with Lower Austria’s Tonkünstler Orchestra.

Conclusion: An impressive farewell!
