But when Marianne appears on the nightclub stage, a dense confetti rain starts falling, turning the scene into a bizarre colourful and shiny snowstorm through which her figure, wearing only a wienerwaald and a very wide skirt wanders until she reaches centre stage, where she signs a popular song and strips down to her waist.

Oskar forgives Marianne and plans to marry her after all and Alfred goes back to his old flame, horgath wealthy tobacconist Valerie. Reading other reviews of the show has geschichtenn a fascinating experience: Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Michael Thalheimer, the director, is well known for his extremely compressed versions of old plays, for textual work that aims to boil down the text to an essence of sorts.

As a take on the play, this makes sense, as Marianne is trying to abandon the path her father has plotted for her, is trying to get away from her neighbourhood of maliciously gossiping store owners, inane retirees, and menacing butchers — and from her fiancee, her childhood friend Oskar, the well-to-do owner of de butcher shop.

Again, this went on for at least five minutes, only accompanied by the sound of creaking cardboard and the occasional grunt. The DT audience was significantly older and significantly more dressed-up — it felt and looked rather like a London West End crowd.

Marianne, both technically and visually, seemed to be singled out as different — not necessarily less culpable than anyone else, not less morally questionable, but perhaps more pure in her yearning for another life, more wienereald naive in her hope, more simple-minded and thus more moving in her love. She gives birth to a child, but the love she and Alfred had for each other quickly dies owing to financial problems.

Colin Mason In coproduction with the Bregenzer Festspiele. Marianne is confessing, alone, with the stage in darkness except for a circle of light just in front of her; she finishes her list of sins and an imperfectly delivered Our Father; and the lights come up on the rest of the cast assembled on and around a long table all the way upstage — the space, which just now had been quite flat, quite two-dimensional suddenly appears almost immeasurably deep, with a gulf of darkness between Marianne and the rest.

On stage, it becomes a terrifyingly beautiful moment.

The latter is slightly run down, dominated by a s kind of charm, but feels very open — in the lobby and in the auditorium.

Eventually, her father sees her perform as a nude act a scene that also triggers a loud hysterical reaction by the gossipy shop keeper. Wichmann even had multiple moments where she seemed to inhabit the text with more abandon than the rest of the cast.
