This year, the ZDF once again invites the public into the New Year with songs, hits and operetta classics from Berlin to Broadway: In the festive ambiance of the Semper Opera House, the audience of the New Year's Eve concerts, which have now become a tradition, can expect lively melodies from the "Golden Twenties". Under the direction of Christian Thielemann, excerpts from "Metropolis" will be heard alongside well-known film hits from the heyday of cinema in the transition from silent to sound film. Berlin as the glorious center of a new, independent operetta era and New York with its Broadway musicals and George Gershwin's compositions are the musical focal points of the program.
