All the World’s a Stage!

Ritten Summer Stage is an annual open-air theater event held in the Commandery Lengmoos. It originated in the summer retreat era of the 17th century. Back then the nobility of Bolzano already found all sorts of diverting entertainment to pass their summer months on the mountain. And, theater could not be done without in order to guarantee for an estimable amusement experience.
In 1973, this tradition was brought back to life when the Ritten Summer Stage (“Rittner Sommerspiele”) was born. However, it was no longer meant to be exclusive high-society entertainment but was made accessible to everyone.
To emphasize this, Ritten Summer Stage consciously focuses on folk plays. They are performed every summer in the courtyard of the almost thousand-year-old Commandery Lengmoos.
