Due to illness sadly the concert at the Castle of Wernigerode this saturday 16th Oct has to be cancelled:

3 men failed briefly which makes it impossible for PERSEPHONE to perform. The concert will be catched up, the date will be pronounced as soon as possible.

Martin: "We are all very sad to cancel the show as we were really, really looking forward to it. Shortly before leaving those terrible news reached us. Tim even had to go to hospital and it seems as he wouldn't be able to play for some time. We wish him and the others all best an a quick recovery."

12.10.2010 - 19:30h in Dezember... » be more precisely at 18th, PERSEPHONE will be once again on stage. And the best is:

The novel "Judassohn" (son of Judas) by author Markus Heitz will be firstly presented at the Leipziger Buchmesse 2010 (book fair Leipzig). To celebrate this release condignly there has been initiated a very special event:
