Taking place on April 10th this year, the gig will see around 60 opera houses and theatres swing wide their doors in anticipation of eager visitors, all of them keen to sample some of Germany's artistic delights.
From between 19:00 and 01:00 local time, the venues will be putting on a host of short performances, each of them lasting approximately 30 minutes, meaning that guests will be privy to several concerts and presentations, all for the glorious price of just one ticket. Although, if you'd rather see something less organised, there is also the opportunity to sneak backstage and watch a live rehearsal, instead of a polished show.
What's more, you'll also get to see a bit of Berlin by night as a shuttle bus leaves from the central point in the Lustgarten, right in front of the Old Museum, every quarter of an hour, going down several routes on a trip to individual theatres.
And if you're in Berlin right this very second, make sure you take advantage of a similar project, called the Long Night of Museums, which is being held on January 30th. Throughout the course of this evening, over 100 museums and other cultural institutions will be open to the public.
