Official statement Chris de Burgh:
“During these extremely difficult times, it is encouraging to know that the hard creative work we have done during the last months and years on our Robin Hood Musical Project will not have been in vain. I am delighted that the Musical will be performed as planned in Fulda although it will be in 2021, and I am confident that we can use the time before the World Premiere to create an even more powerful and attractive Production! Take care and stay safe" - Chris de Burgh.
New performance dates are already fixed
The new performance schedule is already available. The new world premiere will take place on June 4, 2021 in Fulda. Chris de Burgh has already confirmed. The first preview starts on 26 May 2021.
"We will postpone the complete schedule to 2021, start 2 weeks earlier than usual and also play longer backwards, so the season will be 3 weeks longer next year than in 2020. Everyone has the chance to get a similar seat as in 2020. The price increase 2021 will be reversed and therefore the prices of 2020 will still apply, so that we have the simplest and most uncomplicated exchange procedure possible. We thank the Schlosstheater Fulda for the possibility of extending the 2021 date" explains producer Peter Scholz.
Rebooking is planned for mid-May:
From mid-May, all possibilities and procedures for ticket exchanges will be clearly presented on the homepages www.spotlight-musicals.de and www.musicalsommer-fulda.de. Currently, Germany's largest ticket platform is still working on a new exchange software where all customers can be assisted conveniently and with no additional costs. The software is expected to be available in May. The exact tool has not been dertermind yet. As soon as this is the case, information will be provided online.
In addition, an online form and callback service is also being worked on for individual bookings, so that customers can be assisted by telephone. Group bookings and reservations for the travel industry will now be processed by telephone.
To put the form online, we first have to wait for the functional range of the exchange software.
Regular advance sales for people who are currently not cardholders are expected to start in autumn 2020.
Full of anticipation to 2021
According to author Dennis Martin, Robin Hood himself also has a comment to make: "No whining and complaining will help now. Even I can't do anything against this damn corona virus with bow and arrow! For now I will quarantine in Sherwood Forest, so that next year I can teach the unjust to fear the righteous and good!
To sweeten the anticipation of 2021, all customers will receive an exclusive "Appetizer CD" to thank them for their loyalty when exchanging or buying a new ticket. Chris de Burgh and Dennis Martin will give an exclusive "Inside Look" at the story and music of "Robin Hood". This CD will be sent to customers in November.

Of course we are anxious to engage the already announced cast for next year as well, but due to many different factors, we cannot guarantee this at this time.
