(Ein Käfig voller Narren)
Jerry Herman
“I am what I am, and what I am is no secret”—And it shouldn’t be! In 1983, the beat of freedom resounded from Broadway to London, Paris, Vienna and Berlin, and heralded the triumphant advance of a musical that makes everyone wishing for a life outside of petty conventions breathe a sigh of relief. A plea to trust one’s own feelings, not to pretend, and thus make the world a more colorful, beautiful and habitable place.

Sergej S. Prokofjew

Last time this season!
“A musical theatre miracle!” [BERLINER MORGENPOST] One of the most successful productions of the Komische Oper Berlin returns to the repertoire for the last time after 138 performances: Prokofiev's ludicrous fairy tale about a melancholy prince who falls in love with three oranges, in a timelessly poetic production by Andreas Homoki. Thus unfolds a lusty production that cheekily rebels against logic and realism, and creates space for dreaming. “This Prokofiev passes over the stage with such infectious enthusiasm that the audience is completely out of its mind” [Opernwelt]—and has been for over 20 years now!

From the elegant reception to the excellent dinner on stage, everything will be as if underneath the dazzling lights of the world-famous New York Theater boulevard. And of course, the orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin will be playing immortal musical hits from the pens of Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein, including a musical surprise program at midnight!
