Stars under the starry sky
Experience high emotions at the Tonhalle
Sustained applause and loud cheers fill the high space under the dome. Whether in the stalls or right in front of the stage – fans celebrate the often unique offerings at the New Fall Festival. Tonhalle Düsseldorf was initially planned as a planetarium and then converted into a concert hall. Today, it glitters with a starry sky made of light art elements, an ideal location for extraordinary performances by stars and rising starlets. Under this firmament, artists such as rapper Alligatoah appear, who is accompanied by a string formation, or pianist and performer Nils Frahm, who switches between effects console, microphone and grand piano. Visitors can hardly believe their eyes. High emotions with no end in sight.
The stars up close
Even though the dome arches high above the concert hall, the stars at the planetarium of music are not out of reach: Guided tours and talk series bring artists and audiences together outside of the concerts. At “Startalk”, conductors, soloists and other personalities from the world of music talk and answer questions. On the “Von Sternen zu Stars” tour, there are stories about the building and its artworks as well as a look behind the scenes, while the “Spacewalk” offers an introduction to performers and composers before New Music concerts. Visitors come into direct contact with the sun, moon and stars, as well as beautiful views of the Rhine from the bar and the concert hall terrace, which is open in good weather.
