Musicalfest 2016

September 24, 2016

I decided to make a short blogpost for all the people who could not be at the Raimundtheater in Vienna today, and also for those who want to look at some pictures of today’s “MUSICALFEST”. 😉


Like in previous years there has been a built a big stage on the street right next to the Raimundtheater and the show programme was shown three times. This year’s singers were Ana Milva Gomes, Marjan Shaki, Drew Sarich and Oedo Kuipers.

The Songs:
“Einladung zum Ball” (Tanz der Vampire) – Drew Sarich,  “Wenn ich tanzen will” (Elisabeth) – Ana and Oedo, “Gold von den Sternen” (Mozart) – Ana, “Wie wird man seinen Schatten los” (Mozart) – Oedo, “High flying adored” (Evita) – Marjan and Drew, “Don’t cry for me, Argentinia” (Evita) – Marjan.


Of course there was also a lot to see inside the theatre – three songs of the new musical “Schikaneder” have been performed by the original cast – Premiere will be next Friday, Sept. 30th at the Raimundtheater. Tickets are available here. As I’m going to watch the full show next week, I decided I’d better wait until then. 😉

If you want to look at more photos or have some prints, please go to my website => shop – there you can find more. And here’s also the usual slide show of some of the available photos!

“EVITA” – Press conference

December 7, 2015


“EVITA” – Press conference

The next big musical at the Ronacher will be Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “EVITA” (Premiere: March 9th, 2016), so I went to the theatre last Wednesday for taking some photos at the press conference. The names of the three main characters have been published before already, so no big surprise (but still a pleasure!) that Drew Sarich, Thomas Borchert and Katharine Mehrling were there.


Christian Struppeck introduced and interviewed them, as well as musical director Koen Schoots. They all had to say interesting things about their leading parts, Andrew Lloyd Webber and about Vienna.




Director and Choreographer Vincent Paterson, who also directed the movie with Madonna, sent a video which we all watched together:


After the interviews some group photos were taken and more, more and more interviews were given. Fortunately I caught Drew between two interviews to get at least two photos of him alone, so here’s the one I really like a lot:


Thomas was very busy as well, nevertheless I got two more photos of him too, though I like this one better – very serious, but also works with his military character in the upcoming show.


Unfortunately it wasn’t possible for me to wait any longer for “Evita” Katharine Mehrling, as she has been kidnapped by some other photographers and not been brought back during the time I could spend there… well,  probably there will be more possibilities for photos at the press rehearsal, in case I can be there – I’m already looking forward! 🙂 And I’m also looking forward to see on stage again: Nina Weiß, Ariane Swoboda, Susanne ten Harmsen and Ronnie Wagner – which I already photographed (months/years ago); and also Jeannine Wacker, who played in one of my favorite shows: “Spring Awakening”. Another show I miss a lot and hope it will return one day… But first have a look at the slideshow below! 😉
