Singing “Romeo & Juliet” in Berlin
Rosenstolz makers present new musical
29/09/2022, 6:42 PM
The musical “Kudamm ’56” just celebrated great success when his musical fathers, Peter Plate and Ulf Leo Sommer, were already preparing its successor. This time they want to bring “Romeo & Juliet” musically to the stage of the “Theater des Westens”.
The musical “Kudamm ’56” has been performed for less than a year at the “Theater des Westens” in Berlin, and with great success. The piece, which is based on the ZDF series about a dance school in post-war Berlin and an idea by screenwriter Annette Hesse, has so far attracted some 200,000 viewers.
Still, at least in this place, it will be over for the time being at the end of February. The piece then makes way for other work by songwriters Peter Plate and Ulf Leo Sommer. This time, the two tackled Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet”.
This morning, the two musicians, who became known for the Rosenstolz project, but also celebrated success with work for colleagues such as 2raumwohnung, Sarah Connor and Helene Fischer, presented their youngest baby at the future location of the event.
Rose Pride meets Shakespeare
The decision to cast the title roles was made only yesterday, Plate and Sommer reported. On the other hand, the efforts of countertenor Nils Wanderer, who even called the two their muse, and Nico Went, already known for “Kudamm ’56”, had been set for some time.
All four of them gave a first musical insight into the work on the stage of the hall, which will consist of the spoken word of Shakespeare and songs by Plate and Sommer specially written for this purpose. Among them is a new interpretation of “Love is Everything”, Rosenstolz’s biggest hit from 2004.
Peter Plate and Ulf Leo Sommer are currently working closely with the BMG label on the music and the performance on stage. Rehearsals start in January. However, tickets for the three-hour musical are already available.
