CultureTrip: Komische Oper
Leonard Bernsteins classic "West Side Story" at the Komische Oper Berlin
The last CultureTrip of this semester goes to a remake of the classic West Side Story at the Komische Oper. Regisseur Berry Kosky brings the romantic love story of Juliet and Romeo to the present day and combines it with a breathtaking choreography by Otto Pichler.
Kosky and Pichler try to liberate the material from its past and bring the two antagonized clans to the 21st century. Because the questions of the piece are timeless, just like the music.
"Even in the 21st century nothing has changed, we have learned nothing, it's always the same story, we always make the same mistakes" Bill Kosky
