Season opening at the Kulturforum

In the late summer of 2016, thousands of spectators took up the invitation to attend an open-air festival to open the season. The Berliner Philharmoniker performed under the direction of Sir Simon Rattle, plus there was a moving performance by an orchestra of Syrian musicians.
