Another theatre for you, and how about what will be David’s view of Frankfurt’s historic and majestic Alte Oper?
Officially inaugurated in October 1880, Frankfurt’s Opernhaus was badly damaged by fire In March 1944. It was officially reopened in August 1981 and renamed Alte Oper, since Frankfurt had welcome a new opera house to their city in 1951.
The rebuilt exterior and lobby stayed faithful to the original. However, the interior is now a modern multi-purpose complex, making it the ideal venue for symphony, chamber concert, musical, recital, light entertainment, cabaret, dance and classical and contemporary concerts alike.
The building has several halls, including the Grosse Saal (Great Hall) with a seating capacity of some 2,500.
Famed for its excellent acoustics, David will be visiting the mahogany-panelled Grosse Saal on Saturday 18 March. If you will be joining him, then we hope you have a wonderful time.
Let us know if you’re going to this concert and what your feelings are about it.
Don’t forget that the last of the New York, Toronto and Chicago tickets will be going on sale shortly. Good luck to everyone who wants to get their hands on a couple. Let us know how you fare.
Lastly, there have been some good suggestions for future acoustic renditions of David Gilmour and Pink Floyd songs, and it’s also been nice to see which you think are the best you’ve heard to date. Keep them coming in.
