爱丁堡皇家军乐汇演

2 August – 24 August 2019年8月2日至24日

谁能抵挡风笛与鼓乐合鸣的震撼?谁能不为深邃夜空下,风笛手独奏的渺远场景而动容? 1950年来,观看过爱丁堡皇家军乐演出的1,200万名观众,能给出最好答案。

Like the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this annual event has gone from strength to strength since its creation, with performers from over 48 countries around the world having taken part over the years in this high-energy showcase on Edinburgh Castle Esplanade.

This year the Tattoo will capture the imagination of our audience in Kaleidoscope. Exploring colour, music and light, the 2019 Tattoo is inspired by the optical invention created by Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster in 1816.

Celebrating glorious symmetries through precision-led performances, with the British Army at the fore, military and cultural acts from across the globe will be joined by the iconic Massed Pipes and Drums, Pipers Trail, Tattoo Dance Company and Hjaltibonhoga.

Bigger, better and more technically thrilling than ever before, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an experience for the senses.

History

In 1950 the British Army decided to showcase itself during the festival, leading to the forming of the first Tattoo. This event featured eight displays of piping and dancing on Edinburgh Castle Esplanade – a much smaller affair than today’s dazzling offering.

Having grown in size and reputation, the Tattoo is now hotly anticipated by fans from around the globe every year and has come to be regarded as an integral part of Edinburgh’s summer festivals.

Watched live annually by an audience of around 200,000, over 14 million people have enjoyed the show since it first debuted. The spectacle is also beamed to a staggering 100 million people around the world each year.
