Grand Opening

On 11 January 2017, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg opened its doors for the first time with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra under the baton of Principal Conductor Thomas Hengelbrock and several top-class soloists.

The audience – including those watching on the screen at home – enjoyed an exceptional celebration with numerous guests from the worlds of culture and politics, plus 1,000 people who won tickets in an international raffle, and a highly varied concert programme with music from the Renaissance to the present day.

The preparations leading up to the opening as well as the ceremony and concert themselves were broadcast live on German television and on more than four streams online. A video on demand is regrettably no longer available.
