The Eutin Festival is on the verge of a historical caesura: for the first time since 1951 it will not present any performances on the lake stage in summer.
What a pity: The Eutin Festival has to cancel all performances of the 2020 season due to the Corona crisis. Learn more
BY COLE PORTER – SAMUEL AND BELLA SPEWAK
The Taming of the Shrew of Shakespeare is to be performed as a musical. In the leading roles: Producer Fred Graham (Petruchio) and Lilli Vanessi (Katharina) - once happy as a married couple, but now divorced. Both have new partners ... but have their old passions really died out? Sometimes the shreds fly - sometimes the sparks spray. Can Fred tame the stubborn Lilli despite all the slaps in the face he collects, as Petruchio tries to do with Katharina? What is stage, what is life? What is play, what is serious? Mistakes, confusions: a couple, a fiancé, an affair and two crooks. A bouquet of flowers, a misunderstanding and a promissory note. A firework of dialogues and Cole Porter's enchanting music: much too hot ... and yet wonderful - so wonderful that Kiss me, Kate won the very first Tony Award for Best Musical in 1949.
