2022-05-03 | Dresden Music Festival 2022

The annual Dresden Music Festival will take place for the 45th time this year from May 11 to June 10. "Magic" is the motto of Dresden Music Festival 2022 because it is associated with the hope of a real new start after two years of restrictions. Finally, extensive, varied and direct encounters between musicians and the audience are possible again!
