Friedrichshafen: People with little money will soon be able to go to a concert with a ticket for one euro

From next season, those who have little money can go to the theater, concert or ballet for one euro. From the upcoming seasons, Kulturbüro will sell the remaining tickets half an hour before the show starts for 1 euro. The offer is valid for pupils, students, interns, volunteers and Häfler card holders. For those with little money, a visit to the Graf-Zeppelin Haus (GZH), Kiesel or Fischbach train station is cheaper than a drink in the beer garden. “We want someone to be unable to come to us because they cannot afford it,” says Florian Kind of the culture office.

The € 1 ticket will be presented by the Cultural Office team during the morning at Graf Zeppelin House. Marlene Rall opened it on a marimba. In “Ein Liebeslied?” The 15-year-old winner of “Jugend Musiziert” allows sounds to come out of nothing that gently come to life, flash for a moment, and then disappear into nothingness. Later, in “Hombre d’août”, she alternates between reflective and dance passages as freely as she is a virtuoso herself.

The meeting should be about getting to know each other, says culture office manager Sarah Baltes: “You may want to know who is responsible for the cultural program. We want to know who our clients are and what they want. We want us to engage in an exchange ”. For about two and a half years he has been managing the culture office. After three retirements and one job shift, almost all of her house’s staff has changed since then.
