Domstufen-Festspiele in Erfurt

Festival in front of Erfurt Cathedral (Domstufen Festspiele) in Thuringia, Germany

The Domstufen-Festspiele take place on the huge steps right between the Mariendom Cathedral and the St. Severi Church. In 2015 the opera The Marksmann (Der Freischütz) by Carl Maria von Weber was given. At the pic above a lady (a puppet of course) and her shadow moved down to the earth illustrating a vision of the leading actor Max.

Florianer Tanzlgeiga playing in Mostviertel, Austria

At the end of a long day of hiking we listened to the Florianer Tanzlgeiga sitting inside an inn and having some pigling for dinner. The group played pretty lively so some guests started to dance spontaneously.

The Floriani Tanzlgeiga offered an interesting mix of music. They played classic pieces as well as local ballads. The ladies sung the local songs in a broad dialect which made the event even more cosy.
