Falco – Das Musical
The Deutsches Theater presents a production by COFO Entertainment and Semmel Concerts
Sunday: 4:30pm and 7pm
„Der Kommissar geht um“
It’s a top-class musical biography: Falco – The Musical, the spectacular tribute to the greatest genius of the German-speaking pop and rap history. Leading man Alexander Kerbst impersonates Falco like no other: he‘s the spitting image of the superstar and performs with the outmost precision and passion.
From „Jeanny“ to „Rock me Amadeus“
The captivating live show brings Falco back to life on stage. Central are his numerous hits, from „Der Kommissar“, the scandalous „Jeanny“ and the world-wide commercial success „Rock Me Amadeus“ to „Out Of The Dark“ – published post mortem and steeped in legend. A crazy and visually stunning production with elaborate projections and original video sequences, Falco – The Musical gives a deep insight into the (emotional) world of Hans Hölzel alias Falco and his career – from the rocky beginnings to the unsurpassed success.
An ambivalent genius
Falco was a musical talent beyond compare: „Rock Me Amadeus“ was the first and only German-speaking song to ever reach the top postion of the US- and UK-charts – but at the same time, Falco, being from Vienna, was strongly opposed to singing a song about Mozart from Salzburg and only did so because his management made him. Shy and seclusive on the one hand, known for drug excess, extravagance and egoism on the other, which lead to a tragic accident and Falco’s early death. Falco – The Musical honours his successes and legacy but also shows the darker sides of the inscrutable genius and thereby brings back the fascination that once made Falce a superstar.
