From 17:00 on Sunday, 31 December, the Berliner Philharmoniker will be presenting their New Year’s Eve Concert live in more than 350 cinemas in German-speaking countries and many other European countries. To round off the year, the orchestra, together with chief conductor Kirill Petrenko and star tenor Jonas Kaufmann, presents an evening of music by Richard Wagner live from the Philharmonie Berlin in the best surround sound on the big screen. The Berliner Philharmoniker’s New Year’s Eve Concert has always been one of the sold-out concert highlights of every season.

To celebrate the end of the year, Kirill Petrenko, acclaimed for his interpretations of Wagner the Bayreuth Festival and elsewhere, conducts the first act of Richard Wagner’s Walküre – a turbulent love triangle characterised by blood vengeance, incest and the ultimate happiness of love. Jonas Kaufmann appears in one of his signature roles as the tragic hero Siegmund, passionate, radiant and combative in equal measure. Also taking part are Vida Miknevičiūtė in the role of Sieglinde and Georg Zeppenfeld as Hunding. The programme opens with the overture and Der Venusberg from Wagner’s opera Tannhäuser, which encapsulate the festivity, fervour and shimmering eroticism of the plot.
