When, how and where can one have more pleasant dreams of faraway, mysterious worlds than at the Berliner Philharmoniker’s traditional Waldbühne concert? Join us on a journey to magical, distant places under summer skies...
The Berliner Philharmoniker and conductor Tugan Sokhiev take the audience on a dreamy, magical midsummer night dream with works from Prokofiev and Ravel.
We hear Prokofiev’s humorous music for the film satire Lieutenant Kijé, travel to the Orient with Maurice Ravel’s shimmering, sensuous song cycle Shéhérazade and witness the most famous love story of all time in Prokofiev’s ballet music Romeo and Juliet.
At this concert, the soloist for the Shéhérazade song cycle is Marianne Crebassa. The young mezzo-soprano is known for her sensitive interpretations of songs by French composers.
