News from Berlin. Vienna and Berlin have since long shared an enthusiasm for the operetta, a genre of light opera.

The Viennese composers Franz Lehár, Emmerich Kálmán and Ralph Benatzky helped the operetta beginning of the 20th Century to new heights and celebrated successes not only in Austria, but also in Berlin.

Viennese music from around 1900 is also connected to names like Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg and Alban Berg. The 1920s in Berlin are especially known for the pieces by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, as well as snappy songs that commented on the city’s life and society .

In the Long Vienna Music Night, the ensemble of the Komische Oper Berlin takes these different styles as an opportunity to take visitors on a musical journey through the exhibition space.

The Long Vienna Music Night starts at 19:00 o’clock and takes place at the Berlin Gallery. The exhibition spaces will be open until midnight.
