Wilhelm Tell Open-Air Theatre in Interlaken

Friedrich Schiller’s play Wilhelm Tell has been performed in Interlaken every year since 1912. Spectacular and impressive! The new 2019 Interlaken production of the Tell open-air plays convinces and impresses young and old!

Director Oliver Stein's production promises many new features. With its 2019 production, the piece presents a refreshing combination of tradition and innovation. The sequence of sensitive and spectacular scenes fascinates the visitor from the very first minute. The 170 actors and actresses are all amateurs. Thanks to the cavalry (up to 18 horses in service), an exciting dynamic is created on the natural scene.
