The organizers of FreudeNOW

4. July to 24. August 2020


Not long ago Ernst Theiss, Balázs Fellegi, Levente Hara, Tamás Fazekas made up their minds. Three of them come from the world of opera and international classical productions and festivals, both as opera singers and as conductors. They all have a history of music production leadership. Alongside their colorful and ambitious artistic dreams, a fourth man, the Solver and the Theater Builder, has joined in with his obsession with artistic exploration of the spectacularly novel look of technology and visual and acoustic experience.


There was only one thing missing from this source of knowledge and experience: the breathtaking atmosphere of the Freudenau Rennbahn, which can take the viewer into an idyllic world like the music of Puccini or Franz Lehár – they may actually have sat together on this grandstand!


We, the founders of the festival, believe that our common Hungarian-Austrian but also pan-European cultural treasure can go hand in hand with our digital and virtual future, here and now, for the common good of all of us. So let’s start on this common path with the motto: FreudeNOW!
