The Anhalt Theatre invites
Of music-loving mice and a relentless brotherly quarrel in times of zombie apocalypse: This weekend, the Anhaltisches Theater presents the premiere of the play “In the Lonely West” and the first “Pit & Poldi” family concert.
The weekend starts with an exciting play premiere in the Old Theater: In the setting of a zombie apocalypse, the brotherly quarrel “The Lonely West,” conceived by the successful Irish author Martin McDonagh (“See Bruges … and die?”, “The Banshees of Inisherin”), unfolds at 7:30 p.m. in a jet-black tragicomedy.
On Saturday, the interview series “Dessauer Schäferstündchen” goes into the next round. Alexander G. Schäfer welcomes this time at 5 p.m. in the foyer of the Old Theater the actress Claudia Schmutzler (“SOKO Wismar”, “Für alle Fälle Stefanie”), who is an integral part of the media landscape. At the same time, the celebrated production of Alexander Zemlinsky’s opera “Der König Kandaules” can be seen in the Großes Haus. Then on Sunday, the street mouse Pit & the theater rat Poldi celebrate their debut in the big house at 3 pm. They invite everyone from the age of 5 to immerse themselves in the world of classical music at the family concert with great compositions and interesting information about the background to their creation and instruments.
The mouse “Frederick”, who relaxes during the beautiful months while the family slaves away to gather supplies for the winter, returns to the puppet stage of the Old Theater on Sunday at 3 pm. Finally, a memorial to the writer Ronald M. Schernikau is set at 6 p.m. in the Old Theater in the form of a glittering play with puppet titled: “der himmel ist ja da. der himmel fängt hier unten an”.
