Notes & Reviews:

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. This program includes works by Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Lincke.

This Russian-themed night begins with Glinka's Ruslan and Ludmila Overture and continues with other renowned pieces from Russian composers including Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor and Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumble Bee. The concert ends with the traditional operatic hit from Lincke, Berliner Luft.
