Gayle Tufts has been living in Germany for over 30 years. A German citizen since 2017, the American-born actress has firmly established herself in the German entertainment scene and in the heart of Berlin with her ravishing "Dinglish".

With her programme "Ora", the wonderful Sicilian singer Etta Scollo and star producer Taketo Gohara have created an album that is poetically and politically touching. "Ora" convinces with profound, committed poetry, and the musical ladle dips into many old and new sources. Etta and her band thus create a convincing statement against the lethargy of these days, against isolation and "out of...
January 22 & April 29, 2024
His virtuoso piano playing is a reminiscent of a “mixture of Billy Joel and Keith Jarrett“ (Münchner Merkur), his lyrics cause “immediate fits of laughter in the audience“ (Sächsische Zeitung) and “he sings as beautifully as Michael Bublé“ (His Mom). In “Funk You“ the pianist and singer explains how Mozart would have written "Atemlos" and whether Beethoven was really deaf.

„Der Mond hatte frei“
Atrin Madani singt von Liebe
On the piano: Paul Hankinson
Atrin Madani and Paul Hankinson, two world travelers in music: one a young jazz singer from Schöneberg with Persian roots and a dreamlike voice, the other, delightfully remembered by insiders as Montmorensy, a musical genius on the piano from Australia.

Anna Mateur & The Beuys
She is groove and jazz and blues, she is humour and cabaret and comedy. She has been called a miracle voice or exceptional vocals, vocal acrobat or outstanding singer, her voice has been compared to Nina Hagen, Janis Joplin or Zarah Leander – all of this is true and still it is not enough to describe this wonder of nature. She dances, sings, screams and groans, she grunts, stomps and...

Georgette Dee singt
On the piano: Terry Truck
"The language of music has always been for me the greatest thing we humans have," says Georgette Dee, "music can rise above all boundaries, can penetrate everything that seems impenetrable, can create an understanding where before there was a lack of understanding - of myself, of others. Music gives me the opportunity to become happy or sad, to look at the bad and the good, to catch my breath in...

Italian operas are translated in a very special way, Johann Sebastian Bach unceremoniously becomes Sting, she sings and plays her own Bollywood video, and if she has had the dream of jazzing with Miles Davis for years,...

Eine wie keine
Every day should be International Women's Day, thinks Irmgard Knef: the woman who sings and swings and boxes and bites her way through life like no other. A woman who has gone her own long way – since 1948 without her famous and already deceased sister Hildegard. This show is not suitable for non-German speaking visitors as German language knowledge is required.

„Where Are We Now“
The press and the public are of one mind: hardly any other artist comes as close to David Bowie as Sven Ratzke. Bowie personally gave Ratzke his permission to avail of his entire works. The resulting STARMAN tour was a great success. Ratzke is now venturing once again into the universe of this musical legend – different, intimate, with only Ratzke’s voice and a virtuoso on the piano (Jetse...
