Review: ETERNAL ROAD at Grand Théâtre
November 21, 2022

November 17, 2022

This week, it was our pleasure to attend the premiere of Kurt Weill’s Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny at our esteemed Grand Théâtre of Luxembourg. This controversial play from 1930 narrates the moral decline of a city oriented towards little more than hedonism and debauchery, where self-indulgence is the only voice that matters.

Review: PINA BAUSCH at Grand Théâtre
October 20, 2022

What did our critic think of PINA BAUSCH at Grand Théâtre? We kick off our 2022/23 season with the performance The Play with the Boat, by the widely acclaimed Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. The company was masterful in the embodiment of many of the traits that characterized Pina Bausch's neo-expressionist style, from dancing patterns to the integration of set and musical components into the overall performance. The symbolism centered around intense emotional states, manifesting not only in the solo and group numbers, but also through various elements on stage, as well as a soundtrack that seemed to perfectly fit every sequence.

BWW Review: THE QUEST at Grand Théâtre
July 22, 2021

One of the last shows of this season was The Quest, by Cédric Eeckhout. A unique take on the history of the European Union and the concepts of family and togetherness, from the eyes of an artist that finds great similarities between his own life and some of the most important dates of the European project. The performance featured Eeckhout himself, the main voice of the show, who resorted to a mix of story-telling and stand-up comedy to deliver a message of struggle and hope for the future of the EU and collective happiness. He was joined on stage by his mother and his cat, Jesus, who supported his delivery and joined him on several group numbers.
