Dear Client!

Due to the state of emergency and the restrictions imposed by the government on the organisation of major events, the Birgitta Festival, which was scheduled to take place on 7 to 15 August, will be postponed to next year. The festival programme will remain the same and the 2021 Birgitta Festival will take place on 6 to 14 August 2021.

Tickets already purchased are valid under the same conditions for next year’s replacement performances.

2021 Birgitta Festival Programme:

If the replacement date of the opera Suor Angelica by Puccini does not suit you, you can exchange your ticket for the same opera on another date. Please send your exchange request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
