Der Mann von La Mancha

- Not available -

On November 22, 1965, "The Man of La Mancha" premiered on Broadway. A confused Spanish knight fighting against windmills as a musical hero? What sounds unlikely is a touching masterpiece of the genre. Together with his faithful companion Sancho, the “Knight of the Sad Figure” sets out to dream the “impossible dream”.
Long ago in distant China ...
The same spectacle has been going on for years: Noble suitors from all over the world compete for the princess Turandot, who binds her conquest to the solution of three puzzles. If you fail, you die. Calaf witnesses an execution, but cannot escape the broadcast of Turandot. Nothing prevents him from deciding to win the princess over.
Even more than a hundred years after its premiere (1915), this hit album from the silver operetta era is still attractive. Like no other work, Emmerich Kálmán's work represents the end of the Danube monarchy and the silver Viennese operetta era with their waltz tradition. Director and text editor Peter Lund gives the bittersweet love story a new impetus on the verge of the war catastrophe: what to do if the connection between Prince Edwin and a chansonette shakes the family's honor? And how should you deal with it when a well-kept secret of the lady of the house comes to light?
Nowhere else is "Die Fledermaus" as at home as at the Vienna Volksoper. First performed in Vienna in 1874, Johann Strauss' masterpiece is regarded as the highlight of the golden operetta era.

Death is separation from the other and at the same time an approach to the unsearchable, communication with the sources of being and the infinite. With his “German Requiem” op. 45, Johannes Brahms created one of the most unusual versions of the funeral mass: he wanted to rise above all borders of religions, denominations and nations and would have accordingly “quite gladly left out the 'German'” and “simply set the 'people' ”.
