Alfred Hitchcock is one of the most iconic directors of all times. There’s barely anybody who hasn’t seen one of his films or at least has heard of him. They’re visionary pieces of cinematic greatness, made to outlive generations.
For the last couple of weeks the BABYLON Berlin has been showing a retrospective of some of Hitchcocks greatest works. Only until the 11th of July you’ll be able to see some of the masterpieces of this cinematic heavy weight on the big screen. It’s the way it’s meant to be seen, thus don’t miss out!
You like to be out and about and you like classical music? Well, then you’re in luck. The Classic Open Air Gendarmenmarkt 2018 are on. Listen to classical music in one of the most beautiful locations of Berlin, the Gendarmenmarkt.
With musical pieces from different areas and genres the Classic Open Air Gendarmenmarkt is going to be one of the musical highlights this summer.
The only downside is the price. Tickets start at 59€ at Ticketmaster.de. However if you’re into classical music and if you have a few bucks to spare, this is something to spend them on.
The two wildly different musicians will take you on a ride from the rough to the thoughtful, from the bottom of glass of whiskey to the highs of a sombre falsetto. Yet both will catch your minds and hearts, each in their own special way.
It’s been 50 years since the movie was first released. Ever since it has been considered to be one of the most influential pieces of cinematic artistry ever created.
