With more than 50 events, the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music will once again fill Tirol’s capital with music this summer. Take a journey through rarities, musical treasures and operas from former centuries.
Since its founding in 1976, the Innsbruck Early Music Festival has garnered a distinguished international reputation for its ground-breaking work in reviving works from the Renaissance, Baroque and classical periods. The 46th Innsbruck Early Music Festival will take place from July 12 through August 28, 2022.

Plus, there will be three staged opera productions: With “Silla” by Carl Heinrich Graun, Giovanni Bononcini’s “Astarto” and as Baroque Opera:Young «L'amazzone corsara» by Carlo Pallavicino, the Innsbruck Festival is once again bringing three real rarities in Italian language to the stage. The traditional crowning finale is the final concert of the Cesti Competition.
