In Düsseldorf every now and then something special takes place. Such happenings can vary from a concert, theatre performance, vernisage, celebration, opening, anniversary, a spontaneous market or a small one off event. The community adores these gatherings.

For instance on the first weekend of July, when lovely Triena and Sina from Crafters are hosting their fourth Craft Beer Festival. Over 80 brands of craft beer, 5 local bands playing live music and several food trucks will sooth the palates and delight the senses of expats and nationals alike. An impressive list of international micro breweries lined up to attend promises a terrific response.

The current production takes the audience to a magical cosmos and places the question - is it a dream, recollection or hallucination? More than just theatre - artistry and dance, music and laughter speak a language that every international guest can understand. Roncalli’s Apollo Varieté offers a unique show & dine experience.
