In a hectic week or so Oh-Berlin completed a cultural odyssey in checking out some of the best performing art venues in the city. Here´s what we found out.
We had never been to the opera and ballet before so this would be totally new ground. We took in a production of Die Bajadere, which had an Indian theme to it, which we really enjoyable. Seeing thirty or so perfectly poised ballerinas moving with such grace in intricate dance formations is an impressive sight. The Deutsche Oper is a fantastic looking venue with the interior and design particularly handsome. The stage designs and changes were quick and looked great. If good art has the power to lift your spirits then a night of ballet at the Deutsche Oper definitely met that criteria for us.
A chance to see the world famous Berlin Philharmonic at the Philiharmonie made for a special evening. An evident warm glow exuding from all those at the Philharmonie.
Of we went to see Madame Butterfly at Im Schiller Theatre in what was a pretty rousing performance. The main auditorium is also something we really liked as it had a cosy and intimate feel to it for visitors.
