Hinterm Horizont

Hinterm Horizont

The fast-paced Berlin Musical "Hinterm Horizont" at the Stage Theater on Potsdamer Platz tells with 20 legendary songs by Udo Lindenberg a love story between East and West in the times of the Berlin Wall and barbed wire.

The story of the Berlin Musical "Hinterm Horizont" tells the tale of an encounter of a young Udo Lindenberg with an activist of the East German youth association FDJ. how they fall in love with each other and what problems arise from this. The highly elaborated musical production tells an East-West-Side story in the shadow of the Berlin Wall. Young musical performer Serkan Kaya plays Udo Lindenberg, of course with his signature hat, which also features next to a supersized Berlin Wall as giant prop on stage. The musical itself draws its lease of life apart from the story from the well-known Lindenberg songs like "Mädchen aus Ost-Berlin", "Sonderzug nach Pankow" and "Hinterm Horizont geht's weiter".

The historic background of the story is the legendary Lindberg concert in East Berlin in 1983. Hardly any other musician from the West enjoyed equal populariy as Udo Lindenberg in the GDR. For years Udo Lindenberg was active for his audience in East Berlin and the GDR. He even tried to get a permit for a tour through East Germany which never happened though. In some of his songs, he even sings about his futile attempts for organizing a tour through the GDR.

It's a musical with an authentical background which, 25 years after the demise of the Berlin Wall, brings a part of East and West German history to life with music. The site of the musical, Stage Theater on Potsdamer Platz, is located where the Wall used to stand.
