Philharmonie »Late Night«

Late Night

Our Late-Night-Concerts are not for sleepyheads. When other concertgoers are on their way home, this is where things are just getting started: three times a season, the late-night events offer music after Philharmoniker concerts - with members of the orchestra, distinguished guests and unusual programmes. A concert series for night owls and the curious who want to immerse themselves in unknown soundscapes.

Dates and Tickets


She was the first woman on the podium of the Bayreuth Festival: the Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv made her debut at the world-renowned festival in summer of 2021 with Wagner’s Flying Dutchman. She learned her trade thoroughly, including as Kirill Petrenko’s assistant at the Bavarian State Opera. What motivates her? “I immediately sensed an inner magnetism in this profession,” she explained in an interview. She presents this Late Night concert together with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker.


For this programme, Oksana Lyniv is collaborating for the first time with musicians from the Berliner Philharmoniker. The Ukrainian knew early on that she wanted to become a conductor. Although she comes from a family of musicians, her parents were initially sceptical about her career aspirations. After graduating, she won third prize in the Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition in 2004, became assistant to Kirill Petrenko at the Munich State Opera, worked for three years as chief conductor at the Graz Opera and was the first woman ever to conduct at the Bayreuth Festival. "It was because I was prepared to live, wait and sacrifice for it that conducting worked out," she says looking back.
