Palace Festival Ribbeck

The successful production »Effi Briest«.

On June 27, 2014, the premiere of the Schlossfestspiele Ribbeck was »Effi Briest« after Theodor Fontane’s most famous novel. Over 2000 visitors saw the story of the short life of a young woman whose arranged marriage to a much older man is unhappy. A small love affair eventually grows into a deadly catastrophe and ends in the social proscription of the young Effi Briest. The events develop on the background of the moral of the leading social classes to disaster. The human connoisseur Fontane wrote the novel in 1894/95. Since then, the figure of the Effi lives her own life and can be questioned by each generation again and again about their views and motivations, their yearning and their passion. To show »Effi Briest« in a historical production in front of the impressive backdrop of the Palace Ribbeck was a great success for director Claus Stahnke and his team. Thus it is certainly the right decision to play this successful staging in the Fontane Year 2019 again in the castle garden Ribbeck, six performances are planned in July 2019.
