This Russian-themed night begins with Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor and continues with other renowned pieces from Russian composers including Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumble Bee and Glinka's Ruslan and Ludmila Overture. The concert ends with the traditional operatic hit from Lincke, Berliner Luft.
Based on the amphitheater in the ancient Greek city of Epidaurus, and nestled in a natural valley, the Waldbuhne theater seats 22,000 in leafy comfort and remains one of Berlin's favorite open air concert venues, with magnificent views of the stage. World class conductors lead the Berlin Philharmonic in evening concerts of popular Italian, French, Russian and American favorites.
