Styriarte - The Styrian Festival

The styriarte 2019 will go with its guests to (Ovid's) "Transformations" and draw its motto from the highlight of the festival, the opera "Dafne in Lauro" by the most important Austrian baroque master Johann Joseph Fux.

The styriarte, the Styrian festival for classical music, celebrates transformation, change and variation in 2019. In 2019, what makes our lives exciting will flow through a festival of 32 projects with a total of 45 performances.
