The Scorpions to perform with film orchestra at Berlin Classic Open Air 2011

The Scorpions will perform rearrangements of their own hits accompanied by the German film orchestra Babelsberg at the 20th anniversary of the Berlin Classic Open Air 2011.

The Berlin Classic Open Air is a string of classical concerts that takes place every year during summer. Featuring a range of different performances, the program this year runs from July 7 to July 12 and includes Italian opera and operetta, German opera, and crossover productions that incorporate pop, rock, soul, and jazz.

The Scorpions play Berlin Classic Open Air on July 11.

The site of the Classic Open Air is Berlin’s majestic Gendarmenmarkt. Built in the 17th century, this former marketplace is home to some of Germany’s most stunning architecture and is rightly regarded as one of the most Europe's most beautiful squares. Among its treasures are the much-photographed twin churches of Franzoesischer Dom (French cathedral) and Deutscher Dom (German cathedral), and the splendid Konzerthaus, which is home to the Berlin Symphony Orchestra.

This cross-genre concert will be followed by a fireworks and lightshow extravaganza.

The Scorpions' “Get Your Sting And Blackout” world tour continues throughout Europe over the next six weeks; following a short break in the schedule, the German rockers play a series of shows in France in November.
