Something magical happens in the nursery at midnight: a magic fairy brings the two children’s toys to life with her song, resulting in chaos. Whether jumping jack, princess or dinosaur, all of them suddenly have a mind of their own. The teddy bear does a tap dance, and the puppets dance too! Sleep is out of the question. Kurt Weill’s children’s pantomime Zaubernacht (Magic Night) invites young and old to dreams and astonishment, with enchanting music and rousing dance rhythms.
Since the family concert unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, we recorded a performance that you can watch exclusively here. Be enchanted by the charming production by Nelly Danker, with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Ruth Rosenfeld (singing and acting) and the BERLINJOHN Family (acrobatics). The conductor is Simon Rössler.
