To the Berliner Ensemble . The Theater am Schiffbauerdamm puts staging records online for one week at a time, starting on Friday. Fresh on offer: Michael Thalheimer’s production of “ The Caucasian Chalk Circle “. “Hard but ugly”, wrote Rüdiger Schaper in ” Tagesspiegel “at the premiere in 2017 – at the same time the Volksbühne had just been occupied. Too much roar, said Schaper:” Stefanie Reinsperger’s acting force of nature would be enough to shake the full house aggressive volume? “Still:” The Reinsperger’s grumbles deeply when it gives up the beloved man to save the child. The singer / narrator Ingo Hülsmann is brilliant when he doesn’t go fishing. Likewise Tilo Nest: His judge Azdak is one Horror clown that you listen to when he lowers your voice. “ ( www.berliner-ensemble.de)
Loneliness or new coexistence? The performance collective with the very fitting name “Hysterical Gl trolleybus “wanted to celebrate this week in Berlin Ballhaus Ost with the piece” At the sight of the Big Bang “ premiere . The basic idea of the piece reads as involuntarily as it is up to date: “Radical retreat into loneliness is our answer to the fatal political situation that surrounds us.” Instead, there is now a live insight into the rehearsal work “Instead of performing,” is called it in the message, the collective is “suddenly in Edward Hopper paintings that have become real, which the rehearsals had sometimes reminded of”. It is about earlier hermitages, such as Virginia Woolf’s “A Room for Yourself” or Sandra Bullock alone in space in “Gravity”. You can then discuss. Start at 8 p.m. on www.twitch.tv/hysterischesglobusgefuehl.
Opera Tip 1
Hello, why in the afternoon? Isn’t opera more beautiful when it is dark outside? Regardless, the online schedule of the Deutsche Oper Berlin at 3 p.m. today shows Götz Friedrich’s legendary production by Erich Wolfgang Korngolds “Die tote Stadt “ from 1983. With Karan Armstrong and James King, Heinrich Hollreiser is at the desk. “A music that sounds as if the stucco facades of the Vienna Ringstrasse had turned into sounds”, the colleague Frederik Hanssen once wrote about the work. “The bell of this score is absolutely gorgeous and absolutely useless – and therefore a huge pleasure for all fans of beautiful appearance, elegant looks and the caught effect.” With the introduction by Götz Friedrich himself : (www.deutscheoperberlin.de)
