to the agreement of the Berlin House of Representatives, the senator for
culture and Europe Dr. Klaus Lederer and senator for finance Dr. Matthias Kollatz
have decided to bring forward the renovation of the Friedrichstadt-Palast’s
air-handling system, planned for 2022, in order to make better use of the
current closure of the theatre.
therefore regret to inform you that all performances of our VIVID Grand Show up
to and including 31 December 2020 will be cancelled.
Palast is a theatre owned by the State of Berlin, and we support this very
sensible decision, which will also avoid us having to close again for a period
in 2022. By bringing these planned works forward, we can use the time resulting
from the forced cancellation of shows to adapt our theatre to the new
corona-related requirements, both in terms of structural and organisational
aspects, so that we can once again welcome you to our VIVID Grand Show from
January 2021 onwards.
Young R’eye is separated from her father and transformed into an android – half human, half machine. Although her life is now subject to external control, her yearning for freedom lives on. And, indeed, one day she does begin moving to a different beat. With the bright-eyed wonder of a child, she beholds the world with new eyes and perceives the overwhelming beauty of things that we often overlook.
Who can you be? What’s your true ID? VIVID is a hypersensuous journey of self-discovery and a declaration of love to life.
Featuring more than 100 stunning artists on the world’s biggest theater stage. A production budget of 12 million euros for spectacular costumes and stage sets of unparalleled dimensions. A kaleidoscope of physical perfection and outstanding artistic performances that may prompt tears of joy. The final flourish: the glamorous and outstanding creations designed by Philip Treacy, “the world’s most famous milliner” (THE TIMES). Welcome to Berlin’s #1 theater for dazzling entertainment. Welcome to your Palast.
Revue shows are not musicals. Coherence is primarily achieved through visual imagery rather than narrative storytelling. Meaning they are also perfect for guests with no knowledge of German.
Extended until summer 2021
Tickets: from € 19.80
Duration: approx. 2,5 hours incl. a 25-minute interval
