Entertainment with big names
Santa Maria – Musical
In the fourth year of the Summer Pleasure, the Elbe Castle in Übigau is transformed into a Caribbean holiday home. An enchanted hotel on the holiday island of Santa Maria after 20 years gathers five childhood friends, but their joy at seeing each other is spoiled by a real marriage crisis, financial problems and an old summer love named Joana … What would summer in Dresden be without Emperor Roland’s music? The Elbe? His greatest hits such as “I Think It’s Beginning Again”, “Seven Barrels Of Wine” and “Sometimes I’d Like to Be With You” can now be experienced for the first time in an open-air musical.
Premiere on Friday at 19.30 in Elbschloss Übigau in Dresden, next performances on Saturday and Sunday and many days to come this summer also at 19.30

Finally, the premiere of “Rocky Horror Show”
The Landesbühnen Sachsen makes the old slaughterhouse dangerous – after all. The premiere should take place in 2020, on Sunday the time has come. The message of a grotesque horror story from a distant galaxy of Transylvania is terrifying, fascinating and delightful, just like when the musical premiered almost 40 years ago. Hell’s fun, a divine party, a celebration of obsessions, unfulfilled dreams and the question of freedom in our supposedly self-determined life.
on Sunday at 19.30 in the old slaughterhouse in Dresden
