Over a number of years in Lana, July has been the month dedicated to open-air theatre performances.
This is also when the Freilichtspiele Lana Association stages its original annual modern popular theatre repertoire in front of large audiences, setting it apart from the mainstream summer cultural season in South Tyrol.
Premieres of works by local artists alternate with modern classical performances and exciting high-level works of theatre are staged at a number of unusual outdoor venues. The original setting in the romantic Gaulschlucht Gorge is just one of those that have been selected according to the specific event.
In 2014, the Capuchin Garden in the center of Lana was included in the much-appreciated list of performance venues and will again be utilised in 2018.
