Carmen Premiere Coming UpJune 1, 2018
I squeezed this Carmen-production into my schedule for two reasons; to get a possibility to return to
a wonderful role and, more, for pure exercise, endurance training, after the many small to middle sized parts that I’ve been singing in the theaters the past few years.
I wrote on Twitter about an entire village creating opera, and it’s true, few in Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn are not taking part in some way. This production has made me remember why I turned to art and music in the first place. There is nothing fancy about it, no big names, no huge budget or historical location – but yet it carries the magic of art: when a very normal gymnasium, with craftsmanship, hard work and inspiration, turns into a theatre and a place for storytelling and question posing.
I, myself, have got a real challenge ahead; to sing Carmen two nights in a row after three intense weeks of rehearsals. But I trust that I get carried by this interesting and fun production and the
wonderful energy on stage.
