On Love and Death – The lit.COLOGNE Gala 2023 with Elke Heidenreich, Senta Berger, Till Brönner, Michael Hansonis, André Heller and Marc-Aurel Floros

Tickets are available via Köln Musik only.

22 years ago Elke Heidenreich opened the very first lit.COLOGNE with a great gala event. Then, as now, the gala evening is a chance to come together for a sparkling fest. A celebration of literature and music – the arts that enrich our lives so much. The power of art can be a lifesaver, especially in uncertain times. And it is particularly necessary in times of crisis, when imaginations are running wild and worries and fears can feel overwhelming. Thanks to his music, Orpheus was given the chance to bring back his beloved deceased wife from the underworld – but when he did not trust his art and turned around to look at Eurydice, he lost everything.
Senta Berger, Till Brönner, André Heller, five former singers of the Calmus-Ensemble, Michael Hansonis, Marc-Aurel Floros and Elke Heidenreich, who devised this evening, will trust art. They will sing, make music and read together for you, sending warmth, happiness and love all the way to the very back rows.
