HANNIBAL - The Open-Air Theatre

12.04.2019 I RETTENBACH GLACIER

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.

Story & History

Hannibal's Coup

Coming from France in 218 BC, the Carthaginian Hannibal crossed the Alps together with his colorful army of 60,000 African, Celtic and Spanish soldiers, thousands of horses and 37 elephants in only 10 days. He conquered steep rock faces, survived inclement weather conditions and avalanches, and defeated the Italian troops.

Although the enemies suffered a crushing defeat Hannibal did not conquer Rome - a fact with unique historical consequences: later on he was defeated severely by the Romans under Scipio in the Battle of Zama. This was the beginning of Rome's world power within the Mediterranean area, signing at the same time the fall of the African Empire of Carthage.

 

Story of the glacier spectacle

Powerful Machines and Natural Beauty
How is it possible to execute a theater play on such a giant stage? The production of this splendid play focuses on a narrator and a range of unconventional elements:

  • Snow-grooming machines as elephants
  • Night skiers as African tribes
  • Dancers and actors as Hannibal, his father Hamilcar, Dido, Aeneas, senators
  • Climbers as miners
  • Karthago.TV Station broadcasting live from the theater of war
  • Aircrafts
  • Parachutists
  • Sailing boats on eternal ice as mythological bulls of Hercules
  • Hang-gliders (Red Bull flight acrobats) as Gods
  • Fireworks within the battles
  • Xenon lights focusing on mountain slopes and avalanches
  • Pop music as a dramatic element and a narrator who inspires your fantasy by calling things by their name

 

Nature stage on 3.000 m altitude

The ultimate Rettenbach Glacier and its bizarre ice formations make a really incomparable Nature Arena. From Sölden you reach the glacier stage along the scenic Glacier Road, embedded in breathtaking 3000m-high mountain peaks. A semicircle with a high-towered palace forms the center of the stage. Right in front of the spectators' area you find an antique site made of snow and ice. On the right you see Dido's Palace similar to a Maya Pyramid - the Castillo from Chichen Itza was its model.

At a few meters from the audience there is the Campus, an elevated platform with embankments. It serves as playground for the snow-grooming machines, as stage for the dancers and as terrain for motocross bikes. The Karthago.TV broadcasting studio is situated next to the Pyramid. Cameras, spotlights and a seating corner are positioned in front of a luminous, 42m² video wall.

 

 

In the background, close to the giant blue sky brochure, a mountain chain with three summits. One of them is the Venus Hill where the Goddess herself resides - if she does not take action against Carthage by helicopter. And in the center of Rettenbach Glacier you can find the floodlit glacier fields displayed as tent city or elephant skin - depending on the position of the numerous Bengal fires and Xenon spotlights.

The audience is standing on the car park next to the mountain restaurant at no less than 2700 meters above sea level. Exactly from here the open-air stage rises another 1300 meters, reaching the ideal height for parachutists and a diameter of 3 km. This truly outstanding scene is light-flooded by the sun and the moon and the stars, in cooperation with countless floodlights and spotlights boasting some 200,000 watt. A state-of-the-art sound system adds to a memorable theater experience at high altitude: The images of the play are in perfect harmony with imaginative scenes - both in excellent stereo sound!

 

Elephant moves from Salzburg's Festival Hall to the mighty mountain world of the alps

"Die Liebe der Danae, Summer 2016, Großes Festspielhaus". I witness Alvis Hermanis' production of this wonderful Richard Strauss opera and - somehow - this stepped pyramid strongly reminds me of the huge snow pyramid of HANNIBAL, the Glacier Spectacle. Then a life-size, white elephant enters the scene to the right. What a coincidence! After a couple of talks and discussions, a big truck operated by Bergbahnen Sölden takes the giant elephant to Sölden, towards the glacier fields.

"Thanks to the Salzburg Festival this brilliant sculpture was released from the theater scenery to the majestic Ötztal Alps," states director Hubert Lepka.

 

An Elephant and his equals

On the glacier plateau at above 3000 meters altitude the elephant finally met his equals: the snow-grooming machines of Bergbahnen Sölden in the role of Hannibal's elephants that accompanied the troops. The big white animal moved directly from the Salzburg Festival to the glacier slopes without being shy. He also acted as a stage for two professional dancers, Maayan Reiter and Sami Similä who were elected senators of Carthage. Guided by Rotraud Kern - an experienced participant in the glacier spectacle - Sami (he comes from Finland) is happy about the low temperature while Maayan was on the glacier for the very first time. She comes from Israel and didn't know anything about the eternal ice and the white elephant from the opera house. We should invent a name! Maybe Pollux? Good luck Maayan, Sami and Pollux. The herd will start their training in April!

The Hannibal Team

The ensemble of 500 actors is in perfect tune with the natural landscapes of Rettenbach Glacier high above Sölden, coupled with technical highlights on the unique open-air theater stage.

Hannibal - A Review

Sölden, 22 April 2017

Hannibal has seen the stars

Actors, top athletes, pilots, dancers and alpine climbers – the entire valley of Oetz turned out for the big event on Friday evening. Hannibal the grand glacier show by Soelden, Red Bull and the artist network Lawine Torrèn, takes place in the stunning environment of the Rettenbach glacier – 3000 meters above sea-level. The unique story around thirst for power, leadership, intrigue and world politics still attracts a great deal of public interest. 8000 spectators gathered on the freshly snowed top of the mountain to get infected by the incomparable energy of the 500 actors and participants of the show (300 on stage, 200 behind the scenes).

Raging with jealousy goddess Venus arrives on the boundless glacier stage. In her sparkling red dress she falls from the giant glacier walls to confront Aenas and Dido. Her passionate flight opens a scenery of around an hour, which is excitedly watched by the audience.

The biggest contemporary live performance in the world
Director Hubert Lepka created back in 2001 the life story of Hannibal in a contemporary choreography - customized for the stunning alpine world of the Rettenbach glacier. Off the mainstream a piece of performance art was able to develop in a way, which is completely unique in the world. Watching the director doing his work, one gets the feeling he is a conductor leading his musical score/orchestral. Once quietly and then again loud and thunderous the play moves on and spreads along the giant glacier stage. Each and every movement of machines and humans is embedded in the contemporary choreography. Seeing it from that perspective the B.A.S.E jumpers, helicopters, the ballet of the snow cats, the dogfights of the airplanes, the avalanche, the cable car, the hundreds of skiers, the theatrical pyrotechnics and the group of twelve dancers are very well-matched. The communication works wirelessly because not all actors can be reached by acoustic and visual signals.

A brilliant performance of Pollux
While directing the Salzburg Festival, director Hubert Lepka discovered the enormous stage talent of Pollux and casted him right away. Pollux integrated very well into the rest of the elephant group and became under good leadership even a solo performance.

“Why are elephants so in vogue, why are they so suitable as totem animals, why does everybody want to fight within the army of pachyderms – in particular in case that Africa is being their continent?”
I think we have to be aware that ways could part every moment, and then we decide: are we choosing the way to Rome or are we going to Carthage? The Roman world is world of territory, of leadership - a world, which is based on materialism and landholding. The Carthaginian culture is the world of the sea, of free exchange and capital”, explains director Hubert Lepka.

“The glacier is transforming perpetually, which leads it to be the perfect theatre stage. In my opinion, playing Hannibal is only possible here. In this icy wilderness you only have to make a few steps off the beaten track to feel like a real pioneer. That is the perfect surrounding for a field commander, who crosses the Alps to face his enemy: Rome”, explains Ernst Lorenzi (initiator)

“In the same way in which Hannibal’s move to cross the Alps with 60.000 men and 37 elephants is plainly unbelievable, the vision of the play Hannibal is fascinating. Since the premiere in 2001 we created a model for contemporary artwork, which is interesting for locals as well as for tourists. That's what we are proud of”, is Jack Falkner, CEO of the Bergbahnen Sölden (cable car company) happy about the ongoing success of the glacier act.
