The world's most famous opera houses at the Summer Celebration

The world’s most famous theaters photographed from the stage – we will be able to adore Klaus Frahm’s photos at the summer celebration since a unique selection of his best works will be displayed at the Schlosshotel Kronberg.

Shot from the stage looking toward the audience, the photos show the contrast of ornate auditoriums and the technological scaffolding that enable the theatrical production. Klaus Frahm perfectly captures the rarely seen side of theaters. In particular, he is well-known for his image series "The Fourth Wall"


Croatia at the Summer Celebration

Quo vadis Europa? Dr. sc. Gordan Grlić Radman, ambassador of Croatia to Germany, will deliver his thoughts and views on this important topic at the Diplomatic Council summer celebration on June 28. Despite all the challenges and problems the European Union faces, Croatia remains a strong defender of the visions and values of Europe and believes in a bright future of Europe.  His pro-European attitude was one of the reasons he received the Public Diplomacy Award jointly created by the Diplomatic Council and its partner Diplomat Magazine The Hague.
