Favorite thing: Every year on the last weekend in August, Frankfurt am Main holds its annual Museum River Bank Festival (Museumsuferfest), so called because it is a joint venture of the two dozen or so Frankfurt museums located on or near the Main River.

A new highlight at the 2004 festival was a free open air concert given on Sunday morning by the Frankfurt Opera orchestra conducted by Kapellmeister Roland Böer, featuring arias and a duet sung by members of the Frankfurt Opera ensemble.

The Museum Park on the south bank of the Main River was packed for the concert. The photo shows only a small part of the audience, since there was no way to get the entire audience in one picture without going up to the top floor of one of the museums.

The weather looked a bit unstable, but it held. The concert was a huge success.

For more photos and details, please have a look at my Museum River Bank Festival travelogue.
