“The Classic Open Air Festival on Gendarmenmarkt has been one of the cultural highlights of Berlin’s summers since 1992.“

Tip BerlinMagazin (25th June 2009)

“It has become a true cultural highlight of the summer: the Classic Open Air Festival.“

Berliner Kurier (10th June 2009)

“Even the audiences help out vocally at the Classic Open Air.“

Berliner Woche (18th June 2008)

“It simply brings everything into harmony in one event: the bright programme of classical hits, the remarkable soloists from all corners of the world, a good-spirited audience of 6000 and wonderful summer weather.“

Berliner Morgenpost (17th July 2010)

“Without a doubt: just in its second year, the Classic Open Air has created its own aura. The wonderful backdrop of Gendarmenmarkt, with its theatre and two cathedrals, creates unmatchable conditions.“

Die Welt (17th July 1993)

“Rockets, laser beams and play with reflections on the façades of the buildings: the pyrotechnics experts had promised a great deal. The illuminated beams and bouquets of colour were co-ordinated with the music not just rhythmically, but by tone as well. It made for beautiful dream material. The euphoric atmosphere moved the audience to lengthy ovations.“

Berliner Morgenpost (10th July 2000)
