Then as now, the motto rings true: “In Berlin above all else – Wintergarten!” After the brilliant, unfortunately only four-week lasting success of “GOLDEN YEARS – Die 20er Jahre Varieté Revue No. 2” due to the Covid lockdown in October 2020, this wonderful show is finally back at the Wintergarten Varieté Berlin and offers once more a dazzling evening in the past and present – now staged even jauntier and with a few new faces.
GOLDEN YEARS is a firsthand, very authentic reflection of the 1920s, which still fascinate us today – but it also takes a look at the present and shows what the next decade will hold for us 100 years later: Ambience, decoration and costumes allow us to revel in the flair of the 1920’s – on stage are heroes of today, the night creatures of the Berlin of the 2020’s. The show is a very close, authentic reflection of the 1920s, which still fascinate us today – but it also takes a look
Among the protagonists of GOLDEN YEARS are renowned circus stars as well as talented newcomers.
The mix of personality and ability is at the heart of the show, whose artists would certainly have inspired the Berlin audience in the Wintergarten of the 1920s. Director Rodrigue Funke paid special attention to the selection of strong women. The new images of women of the “old” 20’s and their fight for equality are still relevant today and are reflected in the wonderful artists of GOLDEN YEARS.
Not only the stage, but the whole ambience of the house has been transformed into a perfect establishment of the 1920’s. The highlight: The entire theatre from the entrance, foyer and toilets to the stage – and everyone, staff and audience, are part of the scenery and the spectacle. Of course, this evening will also be a culinary experience – the gastronomy of the house serves the finest culinary delights at the highest level, in keeping with the theme. A performance, how it could have taken place 100 years ago in the old Wintergarten at the Friedrichstrasse – and how it will take place in the new 20’s at this very place: at the Wintergarten Varieté Berlin.
Please note: On February 16, and February 17, the trio The Gents will perform instead of the Trio Csaszar.
