The Babylon Hotel is the concert where the upper class meets the underworld in a melting pot of euphoria and extravagance, nostalgia and pleasure with a carefree sinfulness only seen in the exuberant nightlife of the 1920s around the world.

The Babylon Hotel is where music pours out like bubbling champagne and searing absinthe from every crevice - from the roaring and sweaty to the sophisticated and glamorous.

The DR Symphony Orchestra has teamed up with the DR Big Band and their chief conductor Miho Hazama, and together they will take us through the fictional The Babylon Hotel, where the doors are opened to a world of music from movies like The Great Gatsby, Babylon, Burlesque, the TV series House of Dreams and Babylon Berlin as well as the operas Porgy & Bess and Mahagonny - and many more.

With a visit from Babylon Berlin's Moka Efti Orchestra, fronted by singer Severija, we will be transported into Berlin's boisterous and decadent underworld, while the hotel's violinist Christina Åstrand brings us into the sublime and extraordinary upper class in the hotel foyer.

The divas with their sumptuous diamonds are ready for a daring, ecstatic and sweet burlesque party in the cave of sin - filled to the brim with both tango jealousy and French coquetry.

It's not the calm before the storm - but the storm before the calm.
