THE MIRACLE OF BERN

THE MIRACLE OF BERN

The world première of THE MIRACLE OF BERN will also be the first show to play in Hamburg's newly built Stage Theater an der Elbe. A boat shuttle takes visitors across the Elbe from the St Pauli Piers to the theatre, unveiling a panoramic view of the Port of Hamburg and the city skyline along the way.

The musical THE MIRACLE OF BERN is a moving father-son story told against the backdrop of the 1954 World Cup: It is the tale of a family that finds itself, a team that excels itself and a small boy with big dreams.

It's the Ruhr area after the war. Nine-year-old Matthias lives in Essen with his older siblings and his mother Christa. His father Richard is still a prisoner of war. Daily life is hard, and for the time-being everyone must fight their own corner in pursuit of their dreams. Matthias is mad about Helmut Rahn, a player on the German national football team, and wishes for nothing more than to accompany his friend and idol to the World Cup. But when his father returns home after ten years, nothing will ever be the same again.

THE MIRACLE OF BERN is a musical about the power of the family, a small boy with big dreams and the moment that would change Germany forever: using spectacular acrobatics, the legendary World Cup final of 1954 is re-enacted on a 128 m2 wall, right up to its climax and the long-awaited cheers of "It's a goal! Germany wins the World Cup!" Bursting with energy, gripping and deeply moving.

There is no doubt that the three buildings belonging to the Hamburg Kunsthalle house one of the most important public art collections in Germany: perhaps the best place to discover connections, developments and trends in seven centuries of art history. The permanent exhibition of more than 700 works and alternating displays from the museum's holdings offer a unique insight into art from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Every one of the museum's collections is important in its own right but in combination they have an immense impact. The museum presents the medieval altars of Master Bertram and Master Francke, 17th century Dutch paintings and 19th century German paintings with extensive groups of works by Caspar David Friedrich, Philipp Otto Runge, Adolph Menzel and Max Liebermann. Works of the Classical Modernist period include paintings and sculptures by Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Edvard Munch, Emil Nolde, Paul Klee, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Beckmann, Lyonel Feininger, George Grosz and Max Ernst. The contemporary art section features alternating exhibitions, which have included Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Mona Hatoum and Jenny Holzer. The Department of Prints and Drawings comprises more than 120,000 works and is a museum in its own right. The Kunsthalle also runs the 'Museum At Home' initiative where art historians give their expert opinion on paintings (on canvas and wood), drawings and prints for a small fee.
