Rammstein – Made in Germany 1995-2011

Rammstein will be performing live at the O2 Arena in London on Friday February 24th.
 

We don’t have any more concerts, but how about these other nights out on Friday 24 February?

Gesamtkunstwerk: New art from Germany24 FebruaryThe Saatchi Gallery is hosting an exhibition of new art from Germany called “Gesamtkunstwerk”. It will include pieces by Dirk Bell, Matti Braun, Andre Butzer, Max Frisinger, Thomas Helbig, Volker Hueller, Thomas Kiesewetter, Josephine Meckseper, Kirstine Roepstorff, Julian Rosefeldt, Markus Selg and Thomas Zipp.

Queen Elizabeth II, by Cecil Beaton24 FebruaryCecil Beaton photographed The Queen as she went from being a princess to a monarch and a mother. This exhibition will feature nearly 100 of his best portraits. Also included are extracts from Beaton’s own letters and diaries, which will reveal the intense planning and working practice of a royal sitting.

“Midnight Tango”, at the Aldwych Theatre24 February“Midnight Tango” was created by Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace — the same people who have been dazzling us with their sensual tango routines on TV’s “Strictly Come Dancing”. The show is set in downtown Buenos Aires and will take you on a journey through this intoxicating city.

Sibelius, Stravinsky and Prokofiev24 FebruaryJoin conductor Kirill Karabits, pianist Khatia Buniatishvili and the BBC Symphony Orchestra at Barbican Hall, as they perform a selection of classical works by Sibelius, Stravinsky and Prokofiev.

“Sex With A Stranger”, at Trafalgar Studios24 FebruaryWhen Adam leaves his girlfriend at home to attend a mate’s birthday, he dosn’t anticipate meeting Grace and ending up back at her flat… “Sex With A Stranger” is an excruciatingly accurate exploration of the time of our lives when were still growing up, and is superbly frank (even graphic) when it comes to the subject of sex.

See the London Olympic medals, at the British Museum24 FebruaryThe British Museum will be hosting a small exhibition showcasing all the medals that can be won at the London Olympics. Also on show will be medals from the 1908 and 1948 London Olympics. The display will tell the complete story of the medals from start to finish, from the mining of the metal to the creation of the designs, to the final casting at the Royal Mint.

Omid Djalili, at the Hammersmith Apollo24 FebruaryThe world’s funniest Iranian comic is back at the Hammersmith Apollo with a brand new show. Omid Djalili has had a great 12 months, picking up the best actor award for his role in “The Infidel”. This goes alongside his gongs for comedy — the Time Out Award for best stand-up, and nomination for the prestigious Perrier Award.

“Her Maj” — 60 years of portraits of the Queen in cartoons24 FebruaryThe Cartoon Museum will be marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a special exhibition of portraits drawn during the last 60 years. Some are affectionate, some are teasing, and some are totally unflattering, but their combined might showcase how her image has changed down the decades, and explores how the monarch’s image was taboo in cartoons even as late as the 1950s.

Richard Strauss: “Der Rosenkavalier”24 FebruaryRichard Strauss’s Viennese comedy “Der Rosenkavalier” tells the tale of Octavian, who quickly loses his heart to Sophie when asked to deliver a rose on behalf of the elderly Baron Ochs.
