In 1912, Schiller’s “William Tell” was performed as an open-air play for the first time in Matten near Interlaken. Thus began the success story – now over a century old – of a Swiss cultural jewel in the Bernese Oberland. No other work in literary history has had such a lasting impact on Swiss folk culture and no theatre stage presents Swiss history as closely and authentically as the William Tell Open-Air Theatre in Interlaken. With the new production "#Tell Mut Macht Mythos" (#Tell courage power myth) by Tiziana Sarro and Klemens Brysch, the story of William Tell's apple shot, the oath at the Rütli and the Hohle Gasse get a fresh retelling. The supporting story to Schiller’s drama features a class of schoolchildren, the inclusion of whom links present-day issues to the heart of the drama. It brings a generous helping of fun to the play but also a reflective solemnity.
