The musical “Bonifatius”, staged in 2004, was the first step in the development which has led to Fulda becoming a centre for musicals.
Over 100 shows (all sold-out) were performed in the Schlosstheater in Fulda. This high-quality production, whose central figure is inseparably associated with Fulda, received many musical awards and was highly praised by the German national press. The success was such that the show was even staged abroad.
In order to celebrate the 15th jubilee of this historical drama, it will return to Fulda in 2019.
Only a few metres away from St. Boniface’s tomb, the story of the “Apostle of the Germans” will once more come to life.
“There cannot be a more powerful symbiosis between a stage story and its location. We are really looking forward to 2019. We will integrate the historical setting of the cathedral square in a new, elaborate production. There will be a large orchestra from Berlin and, as always, many well-known musical stars”.
The sole problem is that there will only be a maximum of six shows. For Fulda (where two hundred shows of the musical “The Physician” were sold out in no time) this represents a truly exceptional opportunity.
