Lake Festival Mörbisch

Ever since its launch in 1957 by singer Herbert Alsen, the Mörbisch Lake Festival has been considered to be the true home of operettas. And more recently, also of classic musicals.

In summer 2020, “West Side Story” will be performed, ensuring entertainment and fine music alike.



Lake Festival 2020: "West Side Story" performances from
9th July to 22nd August 2020

We are very excited to be able to announce a genuine Mörbisch first for the 2020 season. The captivating worldwide sensation ‘West Side Story’ is a truly classic musical, now on the lake stage for the first time.

The enthralling tale of two rival gangs in 1950s New York with its wonderful Romeo and Juliet love story that unfurls between Tony and Maria has cast its spell on an audience of millions since its premiere in 1957. And rightly so: Leonard Bernstein’s fantastic music and all the electrifying songs (including ‘Maria’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Somewhere’, ‘I feel pretty’ and ‘Mambo’) will take the Mörbisch audience by storm too.

The premiere is on 9 July, 2020. Performances from Thursday to Saturday until 22 August. Tickets are available now at the Seefestspiele Mörbisch Ticket Office (T. +43 (0) 2682 66210, E. tickets@seefestspiele.at) and in the Online Ticket Shop (www.seefestspiele.at).
