From 20 October 2013 the internationally successful stage production of War Horse ('Gefährten') is coming to the Theater des Westens in Berlin. This captivating show tells of the close friendship between a farmer's son and his horse amid the turbulent events of the First World War, a story that has been enrapturing audiences worldwide. The pièce de résistance is the full-scale horse puppets brought to life by the performers. Crafted from wood, bamboo canes and aluminium, the puppets make the show an extremely moving and realistic experience.
But that's not all that's on offer in Berlin – Germany's capital has something for everyone!
