Heute Abend: Lola Blau 2006
A CABARET by Georg Kreisler.
Follow Lola’s escape from wartime Austria through Europe as she chases her dream to America, in a scenic road movie that blends world history with music, theatre and dance.
Lola Blau – who is she?
A famous singer? A fraud? A victim of Nazi persecution? A cynical survivor who will let nothing stand in the way of her career?
She has everything – success, money, sex. Then suddenly she returns home to Europe. Why? Once there nothing is as it was. All that Lola has left are her songs, but can they save her once again?
Annika Edstam, who played Belle in “Beauty and the Beast” at the Göteborg Opera, is Lola Blau. In this production she is reunited with the team from “Beauty and the Beast” – Director, Hans Berndtsson and Set designer, Mathias Clason.
Monica Milocco, a dancer from the Göteborg Ballet, plays Miss Blau, her alter ego, but her performance delights with so much more than dance, in this groundbreaking cabaret by the Austrian,Georg Kreisler. He blends drastic humour with finely tuned ballads and captivating songs. All in a brand new musical arrangement by Dan Bornemark.
