For a decade and a half, the Midsummer Night's Gala has ushered-in the summer season at the Wolkenturm. It is also Grafenegg's flagship media event, televised around the world. The best artists take centre stage, casting their spell over the audience amidst the idyllic scenery of the Castle grounds. For the anniversary gala, Rudolf Buchbinder has invited Rachel Willis-Sørensen and the German tenor Benjamin Bruns, with whom he will share the stage. Accompanying this fairy tale concert is the Tonkunstler Orchestra under its Music Director, Yutaka Sado.
