4/25/23Who will still go to the opera then? How Frankfurt's culture must prepare for the future
In thirty years, Frankfurt's urban society will not only be larger, but also more diverse. What does that mean for culture, for its venues, for its content, for cultural participation? Does it have to open up more, get out of the temples of the muses and into the neighborhoods and, above all, more into the schools? Do we even need a large new theater and opera house? Couldn't we do something a little smaller? After all, who would still go to the opera, the museum, the classical concert? Or is it more a case of defending high culture tooth and nail? And what about digitization? Stakeholders from Frankfurt's cultural scene will discuss these questions with the future head of Frankfurt am Main. In discussion with Prof. Matthias Wagner K on April 25, 2023, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Evangelische Akademie, Römerberg 9, 60311 Frankfurt am Main.
