Festival summer 2008
After the Bond movie had been shot and the European Football Championship had come to an end, the Tosca eye returned to its original colour blue. During the festival summer of 2008, many people were lured to Lake Constance to see the stage in its original function, namely as an opera setting: Tosca turned out to be the most attended opera revival on the Seebühne of the past ten years.
Drama showcase: a highlight of the festival summer
Two sold out drama productions - the Wiener Theater in der Josefstadt with Buddenbrooks by John von Düffel based on Thomas Mann in the Kornmakttheater, the Hamburger Thalia Theater with René Pollesch in Die Welt zu Gast bei reichen Eltern at Shed8 - and outstanding reviews made the new drama showcase a highlight of the season, even in its second year.
The contemporary series Kunst aus der Zeit staged three premieres at the Werkstattbühne and the youth programme cross culture broke participant and visitor records with the most extensive programme ever.
