About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

In our abFRACKt series, a few things are different: the concert lasts a maximum of one hour, the musicians don't play in black tails, and nobody has to worry about clapping in the wrong place.

And you don't need any special knowledge to understand the music. Just come, listen and be surprised. And if you want to learn a little more about the music, download the free Wolfgang app on your smartphone and let it guide you through a live concert of each work.

Afterwards, we invite you to linger in our foyers, enjoy an abFRACKt cocktail (also available non-alcoholic) in the "Tutti" café, have a glass of wine or beer and relax, chat or simply look out over the city from the balcony. Children are welcome, the Wolfgang app is suitable for children of reading age and above.

About the concert:

Almost everyone has been in love. Fortunately, it usually doesn't end as tragically as Romeo and Juliet, the quintessential lovers. But real art usually comes from real tragedy, as is the case with the music in our short concert, which this time features pieces about this love affair. You can also experience how very young conductors grasp the pieces and transform them into music with the orchestra.


Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
"Roméo et Juliette" Fantasy Overture in B minor

Sergei Prokofiev
"Romeo and Juliet" (excerpts from the suites)
