The Comedian Harmonists

Wednesday, 3 July 2024

Veronica, the Weimar Comedian Harmonists are here again!

With more than 100 performances at the German National Theatre Weimar alone, they are the perennial favourite – 25 years on! Experience two hours with a “permanent smile“ on your face, forgetting all the gloom and doom outside, probably comparable to that time when the Comedians first got together!

"Die ganze Welt ist himmelblau"
("The Whole World is Sky Blue“)

Sunday, 7 July 2024

“You don’t know me, but you’ve heard a lot of me.“ This is how the composer Werner Richard Heymann often introduced himself. The pun hides a deeper truth. Only a few people know his name, but everyone who keeps their ears open is very familiar with his songs. Heymann wrote hits, evergreens, and catchy tunes non-stop – most of them with his lyricist Robert Gilbert at his side: “Das gibt’s nur einmal” (“That’s only once”), “Ein Freund, ein guter Freund” (“A friend, a good friend”), “Irgendwo auf der Welt” (“Somewhere in the world”). Today, he is considered the top film composer of UFA in the Golden Twenties.

In a colourful evening, we will present his best songs that helped stars such as Heinz Rühmann or Lilian Harvey achieve great success, but also unknown rarities that were only performed in cabarets and on small stages. Some music just doesn‘t age.

Experience and exhilarating evening with songs of the golden era!

Cast: Markus Seidensticker, Katrin Strocka and Thomas Voigt

Volumen X - They are back:
Pigor & Eichhorn

Friday, 18 October 2024

Live and in front of an audience, on the boards that mean the real world, with brains, charm, and salon hip-hop, with grand piano and vocals. After nine successful and award-winning programme volumes and various side projects, it would now be time for the anniversary edition – however, instead of looking back, the two renowned experts of elegant rap will lean out quite far of their time window and present: Volumen X. The brand-new generation of chansons as a reflection of the rudely awakened 20s. An astute analysis of the limits of modern social respectability and an umpteenly clever obstacle course through the stumbling blocks of rhetorics – even medieval universities already taught students to discredit their interlocutors rhetorically rather than dwell in content. Along the way, Pigor & Eichhorn will expose the supposedly well-known ballad “Ne me quitte pas“ as a stalker’s wet dream giving a more precise translation.
