updated 3 days ago
The Seviqc Brežice Festival was established in 1982 by Ars Ramovš, who is the founder, organiser and producer of the annual event. Since 2007 it has run under the name Seviqc Brežice (abbreviation for Semper viva quam creata - "Always live as created"). The festival connects high-quality international practitioners of Early Music with their counterparts from Slovenia. The concerts take place from late June up to November, usually at exquisite cultural heritage sites, mostly castles, palaces and churches of south-eastern Slovenia.
The programme premieres new and authentic material, carefully chosen to promote the diversity of European early music, from the late Middle Ages right up to the beginning of the 20th century. In doing so, the programme breaks all taboos surrounding Early Music, giving it an insightful and honest platform and bringing in new audiences every time. The festival also encourages young Slovene artists and musicologists to study, research, and perform Early Music.

The theatre regularly tours worldwide and was awarded the title European Ambassador of Culture by European Commission in 2008.
