Summer Festival Origen Foundation

The Foundation Origen (Riom, Canton of Graubünden/Grisons) dedicates the summer festival (11 June-11 August 2019) to the great utopias of the world, lost cities, happy islands, paradisiacal gardens, ideal states, terrible underworlds. Dancers, actors, singers from St. Petersburg, Paris, Australia, Vienna, Hamburg, Munich and Graubünden reinvent the (mountain) world and play on village squares, and in churches, castles and barns and especially in the Red Tower (Julierturm) on the Julier Pass – that peculiar opera house at 2300 metres above sea level. The Julierturm also hosts four world premieres of contemporary dance. On the stage are magnificent soloists from the Vienna and Munich (State) Ballets, the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg and the Opéra Garnier in Paris. (Tickets, advance booking and further information: www.origen.ch).
