For almost 20 years the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra has been known as an ambassador for cultural understanding. At this year’s Waldbühne concert, the young musicians from the Middle East and North Africa are joined by Lisa Batiashvili for Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Daniel Barenboim also conducts Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and La Mer.

For a smooth concert experience

For security reasons, only bags the size of an A4 sheet (21x30 cm) are allowed inside the venue. To make your concert experience as relaxed as possible, we have designed these limited-edition bags that fit these dimensions and will allow you to carry all necessary items you might need during the concert.
