Willkommen, bienvenu, welcome: The SDO is more than a swing orchestra and Stefan Warmuth is much more than just a bandleader. For years he's been a leading light in the Berlin Theatre scene as Director, Producer and Musical genie behind countless shows. As soon as the orchestra came into being back in 1994 Stefan was dreaming up show concepts to centre round the band. In 1999 the orchestra was chosen to present the Christmas/Millennium show for the Wintergarten Variété Theatre from November 1999 until January 2000. "As Time Goes By" was such a huge success the SDO presented the "Swingle Bells" Christmas show at the Wintergarten two years later. Variété Shows in Stuttgart, Düsseldorf and numerous other German cities followed.
Savoy Variété means breathtaking artistry from jugglers to the high wire, with magicians and many more stars of the genre.
A highlight in April 2007 was the SDO's visit to Abu Dhabi where they performed in the magnificent Emirates Palace Hotel.
"European Stars in the Arabian Sky" was a specially produced show for the fiftieth anniversary of the European Union.
The entire show was directed by Stefan Warmuth, Robin Merrill was the Presenter and it was performed before all the
European Ambassadors there and the leaders of the United Arab Emirates.
So put the whole thing together. We can dream the dream together if you like.
The SDO. So much more than an orchestra. Video
