The Deutsche Theater München presents
THEATRE, CABARET AND ALPINE WESTERNS
As in his acclaimed stage programme Da Billi Jean is ned mei Bua, Stefan Leonhardsberger shakes up the established categories of entertainment in Rauhnacht. For this mixture of cabaret and Alpine western, the Austrian actor and singer once again slips into a variety of roles and shows us drastically why it is better to stay at home on New Year’s Eve. Of course, his faithful and congenial partner Martin Schmid is once again in on the act, providing the live soundtrack as acoustic stage designer on guitar.
BETWEEN JOSEF HADER AND QUENTIN TARANTINO
As with the texts for Da Billi Jean is ned mei Bua, Paul Klambauer, who also directs, is responsible for the idea and the book as co-author. Together with Leonhardsberger and Schmid he forms an unbeatable trio. With Rauhnacht, the makers have succeeded in creating a more than extraordinary mixture somewhere between Josef Hader and Quentin Tarantino that doesn’t fit easily into any pigeonhole and – perhaps precisely for that reason – already caused a stir among critics and audiences in our Silbersaal in 2020.
WHERE THE HELL IS NORA ANYWAY?
And that’s what it’s about: Actually, the Höller farmer Erich already has his hands full with various animal epidemics and a crazy grandmother. When his daughter Nora disappears on New Year’s Eve, it’s clear to him that things have to change in the new year. But he is not the only one who has set his sights high. Between raclette, champagne and New Year’s concerts, nerves are also on edge in the respected gravel pit dynasty of Röbelreiter. Storm Vladimir brings masses of Siberian snow, religious fanatics prepare for the end of the world and slowly everyone asks themselves: where the hell is Nora?
