Carnegie Hall and Berlin: A Special Exhibit
Rose Museum

November 2 – November 18

As part of Berlin in Lights, the Rose Museum will feature a multimedia exhibit exploring Carnegie Hall’s connection to Berlin, going back to the Hall’s very early years, when, in 1892, the Urania Theater of Berlin offered a total of 107 scientific shows for the enjoyment of New Yorkers. Since then, many of the greatest artists associated with Berlin have graced the stages of Carnegie Hall: singers from Lilli Lehmann to Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, pianists from Rudolf Serkin to Artur Schnabel, conductors from Bruno Walter to Herbert von Karajan. And great ensembles such as the Staatskapelle Berlin and the Berliner Philharmoniker—whose regular visits have become part of Carnegie Hall’s magnificent musical tapestry—have also enriched the local cultural landscape.

The Berlin in Lights festival is made possible by a leadership gift from the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation.

Major funding has also been provided by Mercedes and Sid Bass, and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from Martha and Bob Lipp, Fundación Mercantil (Venezuela), and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Additional funding provided by Axel Springer AG, GWFF USA Inc., and the Jerome Robbins Foundation.
