Lovers of traditional Berlin operetta can look forward to a real treat in October 2016. The new in-house Tipi production is bringing back to the stage Paul Lincke’s popular operetta Frau Luna (The Lady in the Moon). Paul Lincke is the leading figure in Berlin operetta – the equivalent of Johann Strauss for Vienna. And with this year marking the 150th anniversary of his birth, and the 70th anniversary of his death, it is an ideal moment to revive one his most charming works. Frau Luna is renowned for its catchy tunes including Berliner Luft (Berlin Air), which became Berlin’s unofficial anthem and is still played by the Berliner Philharmoniker orchestra to close their annual open-air concert in the city.
The production of Frau Luna promises to offer a fun night out for two very good reasons. First of all, the operetta itself – a delightful light comedy, all set in a Berlin of yesteryear, about three friends trying to build a spaceship to go the moon. Second, the cast – with many of those on stage regulars at the Tipi and Bar jeder Vernunft over the years. This is a real highlight for Berliners, since it offers the chance to see some of their favourites in entirely new roles.
The Tipi am Kanzleramt also offers a range of delicious dishes, all using the finest local and seasonal products. For a great evening out, you can book an aperitif or order a three course set meal served before the show (with dessert during the intermission). And for that special occasion, celebrate in style with champagne by candlelight!
