The Volksbühne Berlin is proud to present the following concerts in December:

Sunday, 17 December 2017, 8 pm
DJ beginning at 7 pm in the Parkettcafé: Henryk Gericke
Volksbühne Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz

We’re trying to avoid calling them Gesamtkunstwerke (complete works of art) here, but Balbina's concerts are nothing less than astounding theatrical expeditions into sound, poetry, space and light. Her version of pop is rooted in the dark corners of German crooner hits, chamber music and hip hop. With a hometown concert in the Volksbühne, this young Berlin musician celebrates the culmination of two successful tours and the release of her third album Fragen über Fragen (Questions about Questions) on the Four Music label.


Simone Kermes
With Daniel Heide (piano), Matze Eichhorn (double bass) and Jan Roth (drums)
Special Guest: Jasser Haj Youssef (violin and viola d‘amore)
Tuesday, 26 December 2017, 8 pm
Volksbühne Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz

Simone Kermes is pop like Balbina, she's exalted, self-reliant, a larger-than-life personality, a Baroque diva and maybe even the “Lady Gaga of Opera” (B.Z.). A star soprano, she graces renowned opera and concert stages around the world. And over Christmas, Kermes — who lives right around the corner — is dropping by the Volksbühne, just like a good neighbour should. Together with Daniel Heide (piano), Matze Eichhorn (double bass) and Jan Roth (drums), as well as special guest Jasser Haj Youssef (Violin), she’s presenting her Metamorfosi programme. From Monteverdi through Handel to Bernstein, classic works are interpreted through new arrangements, a journey through time from the Renaissance to the modern age, from classical music to jazz.
