The Festive Advent Concert has become a much loved tradition in Dresden and one of German TV’s biggest classical music success stories. The city’s impressive Frauenkirche, destroyed during the war and rebuilt in a pan-European effort only a little more than ten years ago, forms the splendid and highly symbolic backdrop to this event.

Christian Thielemann and his Staatskapelle Dresden present a programme ranging from the overture of Bach’s orchestra suite D major to Mendelssohn Batholdy’s Christmas Cantata “Vom Himmel hoch”, Mozart’s Laudate Dominum and excerpts of Haydn’s Die Schöpfung (The Creation). Befitting the Advent season, it will also include traditionals. With this year’s line-up, moments of reflection and joyful celebration are guaranteed: German star soprano Diana Damrau and baritone Benjamin Appl, winner of the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award, set out to create a festive concert experience together with the vocal forces of the Choir of the Sächsische Staatsoper.
