A tremendous show, perhaps the most opulent in Europe!
Gushing fountains and glittering mythical creatures
A splendid premiere
A revival – and what a revival!
World-class artistry and fast-paced dance routines
The dancing has never been so good
Not only the story is captivating, but also the interplay of music, dance and artistry.
‘Arise’ could be the motto for the Friedrichstadt-Palast itself, which arises from the pandemic-caused hiatus like a colourful and multifaceted modern-day phoenix.
The beautiful underwater world with glistening fountains and fantastical creatures is an absolute highlight.
Acrobatics from another world
You can hardly get enough of the colourful images and sophisticated lighting design.
So much rejoicing has rarely been heard in a theatre.
Frivolous, explosive – one big party
A fantastic revue featuring absolutely everything a revue entails, through to the brilliant finale.
Breathtaking tableaux on the world’s biggest show stage
A flurry of colours and figures
Two eyes aren’t enough to take in everything going on at the same time on this football field-sized stage.
It’s SHOW TIME!
With joyous voice and exhilarating, life and love-affirming spectacle, ARISE stands loud and proud.
The most spectacular show in Europe!
Arise Grand Show doesn't just boast glitter and glamour, it has a powerful and heartfelt message for our times.
My jaw hit the floor at the dazzling whirl of aerialists, trapeze artists, gold-clad showgirls, waterfalls, 14 fountains, an eight-metre geyser and a central pool that holds 160,000 litres of water each night and then smoothly turns back into a main stage glittering with dancers and musicians. Don't forget the huge central, circular stage which rises, revolves and tilts throughout the night in a mighty feat of hydraulic engineering.
One of the best productions in the recent history of Berlin’s Friedrichstadt-Palast.
Fountains shoot up in a thousand different formations, almost like those outside the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas
Too much of everything at the same time – that’s how revue works. The Friedrichstadt-Palast is the last institution in the world that still cultivates the most escapist of all art forms in the eye-watering opulence that made it the epitome of the ‘Golden Twenties’.
More focused than usual, more tasteful and, yes, even a little serious.
Real Hollywood glamour
A bombastic light show
Finally, there’s glitter and confetti, light and stage pomp again
A feast for the senses
On a par with Broadway
If you want to be amazed until you hardly know where to look next with excitement, ARISE at Berlin’s Friedrichstadt-Palast is the place to go. Show time! This revue really is a cracker of a show.
A paradisical pas de deux
The artistry is breathtaking
A ravishing production
During the pandemic, the theatre owned by the state of Berlin commits to a “Feel Safe” promise. This includes security concepts and a flexible rebooking option. What’s more, according to the theatre, you’ll automatically receive a refund if the show has to be cancelled.
The Friedrichstadt-Palast is really going all out in 2021.
Moments of reflection and pure joy for life
The Palast as the public knows and loves it.
An opulent flying visit to Las Vegas
A whole new league
The shadow play brought tears to my eyes.
Absolutely justified standing ovations
A grand re-opening
The absolute finest
A must for all those in the mood for a fantastic evening
Visuals and music on a grand scale
The group dance scenes are fantastic.
People shout with excitement like I’ve never heard before.
The theatre is back and shows what it is capable of.
Cannot be weighed in gold
What goes on in the monumental entertainment temple, one of the last remaining relics from the GDR, is quite unique and has certainly earned it the attribute of ‘world-class’.
There is no bigger show, not even in New York.
The entire thing is a crazy affair that will take your breath away, especially if you’ve never seen it before.
Fantastical costumes of exquisite extravagance
The highlights also include the most beautiful hand shadow theatre ever
The biggest ‘stars’ of the show: the unique ballet ensemble that performs fantastic choreographies in sexy costumes and the water basin that shoots up fountains again after an eight-year hiatus.
Fantastic plays of colour and opulent images
A radiantly beautiful performance that instils both delight and hope, whose €11 million costs should by all means be perceptible.
It’s darker, more melancholic, more serious, but of course rises unerringly as a glistening phoenix from the sorrowful ashes of the memories from the past 18 months of the pandemic.
Chic, spectacular and forever surprising.
With overwhelming confidence, the audience is lifted from its seats.
Time and time again, Stefano Canulli’s costumes are revealed in all their glory, their fantasy, but also their minimalism. Everything seems more abstract, more purposeful, more serious even.
It’s exactly what we need right now. Carefree light-hearted entertainment, the fun of the now, the joy of opulence, the now-more-than-ever attitude drummed into the sparkling Palast floor.
Berlin, nothing can stop us! At least not in this unique self-confident glamour theatre.
Beauty and glamour, classy costumes
Life has returned to the Palast. ARISE is a wake-up call from the world’s biggest theatre stage!
