Founded in 1844 as an “exclusive amusement establishment”, the Kroll opera left deep traces in the history of Germany.
This Documentary produced by Jörg Moser-Metius (Winner of the Silver Berlin Bear) tells the remarkable story of the famous Kroll opera house by including historical material as well as eye witness reports and references up to the present day. It illustrates the eventful days under conductor Otto Klemperer, following its inglorious appearance as an alternative seat of the Reichstag where Hitler passed the “Enabling Act”, up to the year 1990 when nothing is left of the building.
Moreover, the film captures the architectural, political and social developments of the center of Berlin as a place where “German history became manifest”.
