The original Highland Saga - Celtic Night is coming to the open-air stage in Schwerin for the first time. The multimedia show enchants with a touching love story, rocking pop folk music and the mystical atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands.

Off we go to Scotland in the 1930s. Here, in the Highlands, young Dougie Cunningham is growing up. He wants to follow in the footsteps of his beloved grandfather, a piper in the legendary Scots Guards, the Scottish Guards within the British Army. He spends a lot of time learning to play the Highland bagpipes - until he falls madly in love. But he eventually loses his Caitlin when her parents emigrate with her to faraway Canada. Dougie goes to war with the Scots Guards.

Whether the story ends well in the end is almost beside the point, as the show lives above all from its music. Amplified by the archaic sound of the bagpipes and catchy drum rhythms, the professional musicians and singers of the Higland Saga Band fire out one classic after another. "Amazing Grace", "Wellerman" and "Auld Lang Syne" entice you to sing along and get excited - magical moments and goosebumps included. It is thanks to professional arrangers that the bagpipe music is not just folky or even military, but also takes on pleasantly rocky, pop traits.

Corvin Bahn, keyboarder with Santiano, and Ian Melrose, one of the world's leading acoustic guitarists, had a hand in this. Nevertheless, the bagpipe musicians merge with their instrument - they show with intensity and authenticity how deeply it is anchored in Scottish culture and attitude. Welcome to a mixture of "Trooping the Color", love story, catchy music and visual impressions from the Scottish Highlands.
