You may have encountered the incredible swimming stage of the Bregenz Festival in the recent James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. While attending the festival is much safer in real life, you can experience the very glamour and prestige captured on screen. Bregenz attracts both opera lovers and enthusiastic first-timers, as its peculiar setting is a sight in itself. While the audience gets to enjoy the performances on dry land, the stage is fully afloat on Lake Constance, which makes for a stunning backdrop. For four weeks each summer, the futuristic structure that accommodates guests from around the world is buzzing with the muffled chatter of an elegant crowd. Be a part of this celebration of culture and enjoy some of the best the opera world has to offer.
