HANNIBAL - The Open-Air Theatre

17.04.2015  I  RETTENBACH GLACIER  I  SÖLDEN  I  ÖTZTAL

If HANNIBAL was a film it wouldn't be something special. If HANNIBAL was a game it wouldn't be new. But HANNIBAL is a real-time theater play with more than 500 participating actors at Rettenbach Glacier located above 3000 meters altitude. Last time about 8000 visitors came to the glacier stage to see the historical crossing of the Alps by the famous Carthaginian strategist. The show is absolutely unique, incomparable to all other open-air plays. Absolutely Sölden, absolutely Red Bull, the biggest contemporary performance world-wide, absolutely live.

In 218 BC the Carthaginian army was said to have supernatural power and a very special aura. Hannibal dared to cross the main Alpine ridge with his troops – 60,000 soldiers and 37 elephants – in only 10 days, and he could also win several battles. Did the mountains give him this mystic power, and what was the reason for his farsightedness? He won battles against the Romans but did not capture or destroy Rome. As a consequence Africa's Carthage became more and more unimportant while Rome was the undisputed ruler of the Mediterranean Area.
