Grand Show . Grand Emotions .

Who are You? You is young, full of passion and longing. In Diamond City, he doesn't fit into any mould. He finds no love in the petrified faces around him. Without hope, You wishes he could just sink into the ground. Then the tarmac shatters beneath his feet - and You plunges into another reality.

Down there, in the sunken garden of love, he sees what he has never seen before. The eternal human dream of a better world is alive. But walled in under traditional norms, it has lost all its colourful splendour.

Will a young, deaf poet finally find the words to make beauty and love blossom again in all their colours?

FALLING | IN LOVE is a blossoming fantasy. As dreamlike as it could be true. For the New York Times, the Grand Shows at the Palast are an absolute "must-see"! With over 100 artists from 28 nations on the biggest stage in the world, it's beautiful to fall in love with.

  • Revue shows are not musicals. The inner context is primarily based on a visual, not textual, narrative style.
  • Suitable for guests without knowledge of German

Frida & Frida Young Show

The new young show Frida & Frida will be thrilling audiences on the world's biggest stage from 21 November - 31 January with South American motifs and rousing compositions. A must for all young heroes and heroines aged 5 and over!

What is it all about? Frida is just the way she is and does what she wants. When she falls ill and has to spend a long time in hospital, she is mocked by her classmates. All alone in her hospital room, she brings a magical best friend to life in her imagination - and names her beast Frida too. The imaginary Frida is actually a version of herself, only free of restrictions and always cheerful.
Soon the boundaries between reality and daydreams become blurred in Frida's blossoming imagination. Together with the other young patients on the ward, the resilient Medi-Kids, Frida embarks on adventurous mental journeys. And with every step she takes, Frida discovers more of her hidden superpowers.

Frida & Frida is a fun-loving and visually impressive young show that deals with topics such as illness and worries in a child-friendly and sensitive way. Together with the 100 young artists on stage, our young guests in the auditorium experience that they can overcome challenges and that they have true superpowers: self-confidence, imagination, humour and confidence

The new production is inspired by Frida Kahlo's childhood, who suffered from polio as a young girl. But she didn't let this stop her and later became a world-famous Mexican icon. A tribute that Frida herself would have loved: all made up and yet with real references. And full of joie de vivre and unshakeable strength.

The Young Shows at the Palast set standards throughout Europe. Over 100 young talents aged between 6 and 18 are artistically involved in every performance. The young ensemble is the largest of its kind in Europe, consisting of around 240 children and teenagers from over 20 different nations.
Advance ticket sales are already open and special group rates are available for school classes and daycare groups.

Tickets from € 9.80
