Since 2012, we have welcomed our audience to the free Advent calendar in the run-up to Christmas. In addition to the artists' favourite arias, traditional Christmas carols from all over the world are always heard. One of the most famous is "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas". Covid-19 is now making it impossible to welcome you into the house this year, so the two Australians Alexandra Hutton and Samuel Dale Johnson are dreaming of the legendary "White Christmas", as they did in their childhood. But then it happened, as part of the 2019 Advent calendar, that our American bass Patrick Guetti made a brilliant contribution to the foyer programme: "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch": He now sings and dances this "Christmas-critical Christmas standard" once again in the Christmas Carol Studio - together with Tyler Zimmerman and Markus Brück.
So because you can't come to us this year, we're coming to you with all the trimmings: with videos in which our performers introduce you to these two classics, the accompanying song lyrics and, last but not least, a karaoke version of each, recorded for you by Kenneth Berkel (piano), Peter Nitsch (double bass) and Rüdiger Ruppert (drums). Actually, all you have to do now is bake and prepare the punch yourself. And then:
the dancing sole polished
and join in!
Christmas is coming soon!
