Spannend wie ein Krimi erzahlt Billy Wilder in seinem 1950 gedrehten Klassiker Sunset Boulevard (Boulevard der Dammerung) die Geschichte einer großen Tragodin, deren Karriere durch den technischen Fortschritt schlagartig endete.

Der Oper Dortmund ist es gelungen, die international gefeierte Pia Douwes fur diese Rolle zu gewinnen. Regie fuhrt Gil Mehmert, der nach Jesus Christ Superstar abermals einen Webber-Welterfolg in Dortmund in Szene setzt. (more...)
