Potemkin in Dresden

#1 Post by wieske »

From the official site:

At 10 this evening, the film Battleship Potemkin will be projected on to the front of a huge communist-era apartment building in Prager Strasse, Dresden, while the Dresdner Sinfoniker and Pet Shop Boys will accompany it with their original music for the film, performing on balconies above. The conductor Jonathan Stockhammer will direct the orchestra from a crane in front of the building.

The event was conceived by Sven Helbig, co-founder of the Dresdner Sinfoniker, as part of the 800th anniversary celebrations of the city of Dresden. All ten thousand tickets for the event have been sold.

This will be the seventh performance of Battleship Potemkin. On July 29, Pet Shop Boys and the Dresdner Sinfoniker will perform the work in Segovia, Spain.

I have two questions really.

1. It says it will be seventh performance of Battleship Potemkin. I guess I`ve missed a lot but I know about London and Newcastle, where and when were others ? Please tell me :oops: .

2. Why in Spain the concert will be free, but in Germany it`s not?
just as simple as that

They did a couple of Potemkin concerts in Germany, early September 2005. I visited one of them, in Bonn. It was exactly the same location where they also performed a regular concert, earlier this week.

The concert is being sponsored by the city council, the self-governing region plus the government agency which is the owner of the place they are going to play.

I'll miss it I'm afraid.

Yours.

most likely, unless someone puts on the film reels in the wrong order
