    Spamalot erzahlt mit frechem Witz die Legende von Konig Arthur, der mit seinem Diener zur Suche nach dem Heiligen Gral aufbricht - ein Stoff wie in der Oper Parsifal. Unterstutzt wird der liebenswert-schrullige Monarch von den Rittern der Tafelrunde, einer schragen Truppe von Muttersohnchen und Mochtegern-Helden. Sie begegnen merkwurdigen Gestalten wie dem Schwarzen Ritter oder dem grausamen Kaninchen. Die Burg Camelot sieht aus wie ein LasVegas-Casino und Lancelot entpuppt sich als Samba-Tanzer. Die Premiere von MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT am Staatstheater Karlsruhe fand am vergangenen Sonntag  statt, und wir haben hier sowohl einen Auszug aus einer Pressekritik, als auch Fotos von der Produktion fur euch zusammen gestellt.

     A massive hit on Broadway, playing over 1,500 hysterical performances seen by more than two million people, Monty Python's SPAMALOT continues Theatre at the Center's exceptional 25th Anniversary Season. The Monty Python-inspired farce of the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, features a book and lyrics by Eric Idle and a fresh new score created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.

Jeff Award-winning Director David Perkovich and Jeff Award-winning Choreographer Linda Fortunato join artistic forces to put their creative spin on the irreverent musical parody, running September 17th through October 18th, with a press opening on Sunday, September 20th at 7 p.m. at 1040 Ridge Road in Munster, IN.

    Britannien im Jahre 932 nach Christus: Spamalot erzahlt mit frechem Witz die Legende von Konig Arthur, der mit seinem Diener zur Suche nach dem Heiligen Gral aufbricht - ein Stoff wie in der Oper Parsifal. Unterstutzt wird der liebenswert-schrullige Monarch von den Rittern der Tafelrunde, einer schragen Truppe von Muttersohnchen und Mochtegern-Helden. Sie begegnen merkwurdigen Gestalten wie dem Schwarzen Ritter oder dem grausamen Kaninchen. Die Burg Camelot sieht aus wie ein LasVegas-Casino und Lancelot entpuppt sich als Samba-Tanzer. Selbstverstandlich gibt es auch eine Liebesgeschichte - und die Kunstform Musical wird mit viel Herz parodiert. Das Stuck beruht auf der Komodie Die Ritter der Kokosnuss der legendaren Komikertruppe Monty Python, die gerade in London ihr Revival gefeiert hat. Die Geschichte wurde von Eric Idle mit Monty-Python Sketchen und Songs wie Always Look on the Bright Side of Life angereichert. Am Broadway gewann Monty Python's Spamalot drei Tony Awards, darunter als bestes Musical. (more...)

    Premierenreport: Tiroler Landestheater startet mit SPAMALOT in die neue SpielzeitPremierenreport: Tiroler Landestheater startet mit SPAMALOT in die neue Spielzeit
    by Iris Moebius - Sep 15, 2015

    MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT erzahlt in außerst ungewohnlicher Form die legendare Geschichte von Konig Artus und den Rittern der Tafelrunde. Es beruht auf der mittlerweile klassischen Filmkomodie Monty Python and the Holy Grail (deutscher Titel: Die Ritter der Kokosnuss), handelt von Rittern und ihren verqueren Heldentaten und „bietet eine Menge schoner Girls, Kuhe, Killerkaninchen und Franzosen', so Eric Idle. Das Grundungsmitglied des unvergleichlichen Monty Python-Teams hat die Filmhandlung fur das Musical verandert, bleibt aber dem schragen Monty-Python-Humor treu. Auch die Filmmusik wurde von ihm und John Du Prez fur das Musical umgearbeitet: teils neu komponiert, teils musikalisch aufgefrischt. Premiere am Tiroler Landestheater wurde am vergangenen Samstag gefeiert, und sowohl Publikum als auch Presse waren begeistert. (more...)

    by Michael L. Quintos - Aug 1, 2015

    Definitely one of this current millennium's funniest stage shows, the world-famous Hollywood Bowl certainly chose wisely in its decision to stage the hit musical comedy Monty Python's SPAMALOT as this year's all-star annual summer stage musical spectacular, which was welcomed with plenty of sustained, hearty laughter and a well-deserved standing ovation during its opening night performance on Friday evening, July 31st. The nearly 18,000-seat venue's truncated, yet still enormously entertaining re-staging of the 2005 Tony Award winner for Best Musical continues with two additional weekend performances, August 1-2.
