The conductor blows the whistle, the music rolls, the tension rises! Just like a football team, nothing works in a big band without perfect teamwork. In 2022, not only will the World Cup take place, but also the Big Band's football concert. A humorous journey into the world of jazz music reveals what a big band and a football team have in common.

»A football team and a big band have more things in common than you might think. With that in mind, we are transforming the Tischlerei into a football pitch for a day and in the process explaining how our Big Band actually works. The event kicks off with a press conference in which journalists get a chance to quiz the trainer, the stars, the strikers and the game makers. In our case that’s the conductor, the lead trumpeter and the drummer (i.e. me). A big band, too, has its individualists and team players, who all have to be able to rely on each other. Strikers (solo instrumentalists) can be geniuses in the limelight, but they can’t score goals without a good defence (rhythm section). Trombone and saxophone make up the midfield; they are the link men ranging forwards and backwards. There is one difference, however: the fans in the stadium clap to a one-two beat; with swing it’s two-four, or backbeat. Come to the concert and decide for yourself which variation you prefer: the stadium version Pull Bayern’s Lederhosen Down or the big-band version We All Live in a Yellow Submarine.« (Rüdiger Ruppert)


Held in the Tischlerei performance space at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Over the six days of the festival the BigBand of the Deutsche Oper Berlin presents six somewhat different jazz concerts interspersed with readings, dance, film and drama.
