Berlin is probably special, but you'd find such activity in most
big European cities (big enough to provide a non-trivial audience).
As to state support for 'non commercial' culture, even in Europe
things are changing, and the current economic crisis doesn't help.
It depends very much on the type of government. Populists ones like
in Italy (Berlusconi) are doing their best to kill off anything they
see as 'elitist'. A new law regarding this was forced through parliament
last week (with a confidence vote of course, the 40th or so in two
years), and at least half the performances at La Scala and other
places have been cancelled in protest.
