AIDA Cruises continues its long-standing devotion as the main sponsor of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival until 2024. By signing a new contract, Rostock Cruises and the regional classic festival build a partnership that has existed for more than 20 years and at the same time heralds the highlight of the next joint season.
“Just like the Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Festival, AIDA Cruises is firmly rooted in our beautiful state. Together, we are committed to the diverse cultural offer in our homeland and look forward to inspiring many pieces of music and classical music lovers with great concerts over the next three years,” says Felix Eichhorn, president of AIDA Cruises.
Ursula Hasselbock, artistic director of the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Festival, welcomes further cooperation and points out: “The Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Festival is overjoyed to be able to continue working with its long-standing partner and main sponsor AIDA Cruises in the future. The past few years have proven that AIDA Cruises is not only one of the most important employers in the state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania but also supports culture as a reliable partner of the Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Festival. The partnership is characterized by collaborative work at eye level and the idea of inspiring people with and for music. On behalf of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, I would like to thank you for your incredible commitment and I look forward to another three years of good cooperation!”
During the 2022 festival summer, AIDA is sponsoring one of the highlights of this year’s season: a Beethoven triple concert on August 20 with award-winner Emmanuel Tjeknavoryan, cellist Harriet Krieg and Keith Armstrong on piano. The State Stables in Redefin serves as an unusual venue for this concert, giving the event a very special atmosphere for young and old with a picnic in the park, pony rides, and a horse show.
