Event Dates and Advance Notices

If I have now sparked your interest in my work and you wish to see my costumes "in motion", you should prebook the following event dates (update: April 2024):

"It should rain red roses for me"

A musical and psychological portrait of Hildegard Knef, book by James Edward Lyons
Hildegard Knef's career as an actress, singer and author was characterized by both success and failure. The aging Knef, narrowly escaping cancer and abandoned by her husband, sits in front of the typewriter and looks into the mirror of her own past. Here she meets "Hilde", her younger, hopeful self. An exchange of blows between the two women begins. "Die Knef" was the first German film idol after 1945, surrounded by scandal in "Die Sünderin", celebrated on Broadway and one of the few German world stars. James Edward Lyon's musical-scenic portrait "It should rain red roses for me" revives a style icon of the 1960s.
With Stephanie Theiß, Joana Tscheinig and Horst Maria Merz (musical director)
Director: Ulf Dietrich

Premiere:    September 9, 2023
Time:          September 9, 2023 – May 2024
