A demonstration

A huge protest was in motion by the European Central Bank in Frankfurt during lunch hour, on tatort klimakrise / climate crisis. A sizable crowds marched onto Neue Mainzer Str then left onto Untermainkai along the river Main. I crossed Untermainbrücke onto Schweizer Str., heading to lunch at Gemalten Haus.

Anne-Sophie Mutter @ Alte Oper

The Old Opera House
Opernplatz 1,
60313 Frankfurt am Main, Germany

The music is wonderful, so is her performance. Her demeanor is so different from when she was in Shanghai in 2016 when and where she talked to her pianist all the time. The hall looks plusher – did they get a facelift?

Her Mozart night:

  1. Violin Concerto No. 2 K.211, D major
  2. Violin Concerto No. 3 K.216, G major
  3. Symphony N. 1 K.16, E flat major
  4. Violin Concerto No. 5 K.219, A major “Turkish”

She gave two encores, one was six minutes long and one was four minutes.


The company that manages or sells the tickets is responsive but charges €5 if you don’t print your ticket bec the barcode in the email doesn’t work. What the hick??? Why wastes paper!!!???
