Longing for Beauty


Longing for Beauty


June 15 – June 17, 2023, 8 p.m.


Oriental-Islamic Garden/Hall of Receptions
Eisenacher Straße 99
12685 Berlin

The event will be held on June 15, 16 and 17.

Tickets in advance via the website of the Neuköllner Oper.

Summer evening at one of the most beautiful places in Berlin: the Oriental Garden. Here, beauty is a sign and a path to something beyond. In the interplay of Orient and Occident we look “back” to the first ideas of paradise and look “ahead” to current insights about what makes us perceive. And ask: What would be “beauty” in relationships among people, in society, to nature? Reflected in art and folk songs, arias and soundscapes, sung and performed by Luise Enzian, Tehila Nini-Goldstein and Kaan Bulak.
