We saw the final night of the Magic Flute, and despite niggling drizzle, the Opera, Performers, Orchestra and location was stunning from beginning to end. Turandot is the next scheduled opera on the lake-stage for the next two years, and I would strongly recommend getting tickets around midsummer- I can only imagine the spectacle on a lovely evening with the...

Whilst the best way to experience this theatre would no doubt be during a performance of an opera during the Bregenz Festival, visiting this place during the day time is still impressive. You get to see the scale of the outdoor sets, with information about their construction provided over a loud speaker, although only in German. You can walk around... More

Every summer the Opera visits the lake in a setting that males one wonder why this is the new normal. Flanked by the Austrian and Swiss Alps, where the Rhein enters a sea that the suns melts into on summer nights, the Bregenzer Festespiele hosts a classic opera in a modern setting that incorporates the lake into the story.

The Seebuehne is the must-see event in Bregenz when you are looking to escape the beautiful local lake and mountains. You can visit the set during the day when through the tannoy they will explain (in German I'm afraid) how the set was constructed and why. For English and if you would like to know a little more than usual... More

A really spectacular production. Very much in spirit of Mozart. The backdrop of the lake added to a really unique set. The extras were in no way distracting. The only cca vest were the subtitles being available only in German. It would be possible to have bilingual subtitles. Not essential though.

You must go there for the operas!! But you mhave to get tickets earlier. When I heard that my wife bought us tickets for the Magical Flute opera by Mozart, to be honest I wasn't very happy. But the two hours spent there were amazing, the scenery is mind blowing and the view of the lake is great.

We attended a spectacular performance of Mozart's Magic Flute at the lake stage in Bregenz. This is a truly unique experience, and the opera - which will be played in the summer of 2014 as well - was not only well-staged, but superbly sung, and the orchestra was terrific. As I'm told Mozart was a fun-loving person, and I'm sure... More

The setting on the lake, stage design, and opera performance were amazing. If going to Bregenz it really should include seeing one of the performances on the lake. Tickets must be reserved in advance as they run out soon. Completely work the time and price. Looking forward to returning.
