A joint production of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Haus für Poesie
Although Beethoven created the first great song cycle with "An die ferne Geliebte", his song oeuvre is overshadowed by the great Romantic composers. The evening with Annika Schlicht, Attilio Glaser and Alexandra Hutton links the cycle with Beethoven's most famous song "Adelaide" and the arrangements of Scottish folk songs.
Classical art songs and modern poetry – lieder recital meets poetry reading in this series of events organised jointly with the Haus für Poesie Berlin. Each of the four evening events held in the foyer of the Deutsche Oper Berlin will feature a poet reading original works whose themes complement the songs on the programme.
