I am currently in Mannheim, Germany, a long time since I have been over this side of the world and thus am intaking enormous amounts of cold meats, heavy breads and buying bulk bananas that are affordable in this country.
I am guesting with the Nationaltheatre Mannheim – performing in Schumann’s Das Paradise und die Peri.
This particular version was staged by Joachim Schloemer in 2009, I appeared also in this original production.
For most of the work I play a child, the jungling, ranging from 3 – 18 I think, there is much blood to swim in, dirt to play in and an angel that literally fly’s. Performing along side a spectacular line up of opera talent including the remarkable Cornelia Ptassek.
We begin performances next week, check the Nationaltheatre website for details…..
