TOAST TO THE SUMMER: GREAT EUROPEAN WINES FESTIVAL AT ARMINIUSMARKTHALLE

TOAST TO THE SUMMER: GREAT EUROPEAN WINES FESTIVAL AT ARMINIUSMARKTHALLE

Maybe on your last trip to Portugal you discovered the taste of Vinho Verde: the grapes used to make this light wine with fine aromas of citrus and pome fruit grow only in the countryside surrounding Porto on the green hills between the Douro and Minho rivers. And now you’re standing at a Berlin wine shelf looking for the perfect bottle for a little downtime on the balcony and wondering what your options are. Let the experts at the Great European Wines Festival (20.06.2019) advise you. Here you can have a chat with the winemakers and ask them everything you ever wanted to know about wine – and naturally sample some of the 75 wines available for tasting. All of this takes place in the marvelous atmosphere of the Arminiusmarkthalle with its 15m high ceilings. In addition to Portuguese DOC wines, the event will host Italian vineyards sharing their wines with us. If that doesn’t get you in the mood for your next summer getaway, it’s at least the perfect little trip to Moabit. (Text: Katie Burton / Photos: Arminiusmarkthalle & Mina Aichhorn)

STATE OPERA FOR ALL: CLASSICAL MUSIC WITH ONLY THE SKY ABOVE YOU

STATE OPERA FOR ALL: CLASSICAL MUSIC WITH ONLY THE SKY ABOVE YOU

Imagine transforming a space right in the middle of a hectic metropolis into an open auditorium for Daniel Barenboim’s orchestra? Well, the Staatsoper Unter den Linden is doing just that by taking to the streets, or rather Bebelplatz, once again. For one weekend only, you will be able to enjoy the sight and sound of the Staatsoper Berlin with only the sky above you, seeing the opera – literally – in a new light. Events start this Saturday (15.06.2019, 15h) with a live big-screen broadcast of Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde” directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov, with Barenboim conducting. The outdoor music continues on Sunday 16.06.2019 at 13h with an open-air symphony concert by the Staatskapelle Berlin, including works by Mendelssohn and Brahms. A violin concerto featuring prize-winning violinist Jiyoon Lee is bound to be a highlight. But the Opera for All weekend has always been more than just music: it’s about bringing Berliners of all sorts – old and young, opera buffs and newcomers – together. Our tip for these free-of-charge performances: bring your own chair and picnic for the full outdoor experience.
