Concert information



Melanie and Marlon have the most amazing grandpa in the world. He is 107 years old and has set 857 records, for instance in slow walking and in arm wrestling with a gorilla. But now, Grandpa Winnie has only four weeks to live and he wants to set his last record: to float away as the lightest person in the world. Markus Orth’s story Opa fliegt (Grandpa Flies) deals with a difficult subject in a touching and gentle way: saying goodbye to a loved one. The Scharoun Ensemble presents the children’s book for the first time in a setting by Michael Langemann.
