Spring Awakening - Theater Freiburg 2014/15
Another great performance created and enabled by Gary Joplin (Director & Choreography), Emma-Louise Jordan (Choreography) and Nikolaus Reinke (Music Director) can be seen in Freiburg at the Stadtteater these days.
Based on the original play by Frank Wedekind and the 2006 Broadway musical by Steven Satar the music (also leaning tightly towards the original by Duncan Sheik) carries the youthful, chaotic and intense emotions through the scenes like a wave.
The young actors are very professional and authentic to a point where the audience reacts very emotionally at times. Having seen the piece 5 times already (well, my son plays in it) I saw quite some tears and standing ovations.
Due to the great reviews and the convincing performance of all involved the successful arrangement sells out every show so far. Get your tickets early, here.
