INTRODUCING THE MAX REINHARDT SEMINAR: “MUSIK LIEGT IN DER LUFT” (MUSIC IS IN THE AIR)
THE REINHARDT SEMINAR PLAYS MUTH
Lieder & singing | Performance | Concert | Adults
Come along and enjoy some of the finest and best-loved songs from stage and screen, presented by the latest generation of theatrical talent! You’ll be treated to selections from Brecht’s “Threepenny Opera” and Nestroy’s “Talisman”, along with other songs made famous by Hildegard Knef and Gerhard Bronner, together with popular numbers from the films of the 1930s. All are performed by students from the Max Reinhardt Seminar
at the mdw (University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna), who are staging a series of four shows. Students from the courses in acting and theatrical direction will also contribute their skills and artistic vision.
In this series of productions, students from the Seminar’s course in theatrical direction stage a selection of their dissertation projects. The series, which is presented in collaboration with MuTh, was launched last season with a highly successful production of Thomas Bernhard’s “Ritter, Dene, Voss”.
With MuTh as a performance venue, the famous Max Reinhardt Seminar is moving its focus closer to the city. The ensemble bring with them fresh thinking and a new energy – so the MuTh audience can expect a taste today of the theatre of tomorrow!
Because these are final dissertation pieces, the actual titles and content of the individual works selected can only be communicated as our programme for the year progresses.
