The Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH, which – due to the pandemic – coordinates several postponements and cancellations together with its funding recipients, had to reschedule. The anniversary celebrations have been extended up to and including September 2021. “With the extension of the celebration year finding a new date for the European Cultural Award has also been simplified”, declares Malte Boecker, Artistic Manager of the Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH. “We are glad that the European Cultural Award Gala at the opera Bonn remains an important highlight of the Beethoven anniversary.”

The Beethoven-Gala will now take place at the opera in Bonn on 28 August 2021. Already purchased tickets remain valid or can be credited for next year. Customers who want to return their tickets receive a reimbursement equal to the ticket costs.

About the European Cultural Award:
The ceremony of the European Cultural Award is regarded as cultural highlight in the event calendars of the respective venues – e. g. the Dresdner Frauenkirche, Hamburger Elbphilharmonie or the Vienna State Opera – and depicts an important platform for art, economy and politics. With this award well-known personalities, initiatives, artists, politicians and institutions are honored for their outstanding merits and achievements for Europe. In recent years these were, inter alia, the tenor Piotr Beczala, soprano Anja Harteros, painter Gerhard Richter, Fürst Albert II. of Monaco, actor Daniel Brühl, the European Union Youth Orchestra, Nana Mouskouri or the Dresdner Musikfestspiele.
