For some, it’s “Verdi” for the Elphapa of the Witch of the West, another “Webber” enters the stage and the audience welcomes you with thundering applause. But not only the witch on the stage also your visitors in the auditorium are furnished with green and black flowing robes. “Already the experience does not stop a vision at the end, Internet forums, you tube” and fan clubs leave the impressions of on flame. It is not something Ernie Barbarash would like to discuss. In addition to “Wicked” a production of the Broadway, it seems a “I have never been in New York” with music by Udo Jurgens rather than suburban piece. Far from the old songs Udo Jurgens packed in a new guise in one (although love story but) history interwoven makes not just Grandma’s teach the clapping and German drinking songs. Visitor numbers and CD sales confirm the enthusiasm which still release songs like “Greek wine”. Culture experts the musical still as Efekt – hashed, is decried rather the true stage of art circus, what the ever-increasing number of premieres and successes, but no Demolition does. Everything is offered by cheesy up to the deadly drama.
Who has seen for example Elisabeth is not more lightly just “Sissi” call the Empress and refer to “Romeo and Juliet” not as soporific. Art is there to entertain, minor matter is whether a top Verdi, an action movie with Bruce Willis or a singing the Lion King leads to success. We hope that the musical industry still will care for goosebumps and conversation so that you must not miss the dreams without computer animations. Helmut Laussegger for
