The Classic Open Air Festival involves pyrotechnical displays, using the entire exterior of the square’s theatre building to accompany through light the live performance of selected works. This requires a careful analysis and study of the individual pieces of music on the part of professional technicians, who work to match the interpretations of conductor and orchestra. Hundreds of different pyrotechnical effects are produced from specially installed lighting rigs over a period of two days by a team of ten technicians. The exactly synchronised ignition of the effects is made possible by advanced digital ignition technology which guarantees the perfectly smooth operation of each show. The result is an artistically beautiful mix of music and mood which enchants the audience; an interaction of the senses which creates emotion and calls to mind things past and things beautiful.

None of this would be possible without the support of our partners, Pyronale Events GmbH - Pyro-Experts for all your needs
