An English-language production based on musical allegories drawing on Purcell and the pub is coming to Berlin next week, and the combination of classical music, whiskey, and some good old British humour sounds too good to miss… but our spies tell us that the show on the 19th is already sold out so you had better get your tickets quick!
Here is some more info about the production:
“Angels’ Share is the term used by whisky distillers to describe part of the whiskey which evaporates during the aging process and is so, for the angels. The eponymous concert guides the audience, with help from the Urban Strings ensemble supported by performers and a singer, through the musically bizarre journey from the noble courtly culture of Henry Purcell‘s London into the pubs where the still thriving fiddle culture of the Highlands of Scotland is to be found. An evening of music ‚navigated‘ by Nicola Hümpel, peppered with British humour and a touch of snobbism – A musical duel between Aristocracy and Ale house, between melancholy, intoxication and the lust for life…”
Sound good? There are shows on the 20th, 21st and 22nd December at Radialsystem V, Holzmarktstraße 33… you can find out more information about the project on the Nico and the Navigators website, whilst tickets for the performances are available via the venue, Radialsystem V.
