Designed by the celebrated Italian architect Renzo Piano, the Stage Theater am Potsdamer Platz opened its doors in 1999, becoming part of a new era. What was once a no man's land while the Wall was standing has now become a bustling centre with the Sony Center, shops, cafés, and cinemas.

The musical Hinterm Horizont, with music by Udo Lindenberg, has been thrilling audiences for the past two years. Lindenberg, the rebel rock poet, believed in a united Germany without borders more than anyone, with fanatical, relentless nonchalance. With his unmistakable music, lyrics with depth and unrestrained candour, he blew up the mental Wall in everyone's heads again and again and united hearts in East and West, long before the GDR was a thing of the past.

For non-German visitors to experience and understand the successful Berlin musical, songs and dialogues can be read in English on large LED displays to the left and right of the stage.

In January 2011, some 20 years after German reunification, STAGE ENTERTAINMENT and Udo Lindenberg worked with successful author Thomas Brussig (Sonnenallee) and director Ulrich Waller to bring the Lindenberg musical to the big stage.

Right where the Wall once divided Germany, HINTERM HORIZON blends fact and fiction in a moving story about the "girl from East Berlin", told through Udo Lindenberg’s big hits.

Experience a great show, great theatre, coupled with impressive historical video projections, and a rock concert to boot: "Hinterm Horizont" really is much more than just a musical about one of the best German artists.
