Event details

On the first evening we present "Urban Folktales", the production, which is characterized by a particularly large number of musical guests. The exceptional singer Theo Bleckmann was already familiar to us through our collaboration in our program "Joys & Desires" and the music of the great John Hollenbeck. Guitarist Nguyên Lê was already a guest on Heinrich von Kalnein's production "Perfect World" in 1998, and hurdy-gurdy player Matthias Loibner and saxophonist Johannes Enders became permanent members of the band.
