The Capital Dance Orchestra presents with its two grandiose singers Sharon Brauner and Meta Hüper a brilliant musical journey through the unique atmosphere of this incomparable city.
This evening reflects in a very special way the feeling for life of the Roaring Twenties.
More than 180 dance palaces and amusement temples were opened in Berlin between 1926 and 1929. Life was fast-paced, glamorous and pulsating back then, full of desire for pure pleasure and wicked parties. Between two world wars, the building of the Berlin Wall and the fall of the Wall, the creative quagmire emerged that still forms the cultural breeding ground of the capital today.
With American, Russian, Yiddish, French, English and, of course, German music, the orchestra now brings all the significant musical and cultural influences of the last 100 years to the stage in one concert evening. From swing to techno, from Marlene Dietrich to Seeed: The Capital Dance Orchestra builds a bridge from the golden age to the present.
With a cast and set true to the original, the 13 congenial musicians under the direction of David Canisius have been embodying the glitz and glamour of Berlin's legendary dance palaces since 2005.
