“DESPITE IT ALL!”

DOCUMENTARY

Stop the Silence!

With their performance of Haydn’s „The Creation“, the Balthasar Neumann Ensembles and Thomas Hengelbrock have put an end to the silence imposed on choral singing by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In Dortmund’s Konzerthaus, we showed that anything is possible, if you never give up!
The documentary gives impressions of some of our circumstances and experiences during this outstanding project, which tested the limits of human possibility.
