BWW Review: ABIGAIL'S PARTY at Grand Théâtre
November 29, 2018

From the 27th to the 29th of November, the Grand Theatre delighted Luxembourg with the lovely play Abigail's Party. Comedies in English are not that common around the Grand Duchy, so it was no surprise to learn that all three performances were sold out weeks before the opening night.

On the 15th of November, the Kinneksbond received an interesting version of Georg Buchner's Lenz, a pivotal text that helped shape the early decades of German modernism. Very few literary works from its time have focused so openly on depression, degrading mental health and the weight of loneliness and social isolation on the human mind as Lenz, making it no easy challenge to present this work as a play.

Last night, we had the opportunity to watch the dress rehearsals of 'Young Frankenstein', the most recent project of Pirate Productions. Unlike most events we have covered so far in Luxembourg, this is the work of a company composed entirely by residents of the Grand Duchy, so we finally got a chance to see what this small nation has to offer.

BWW Review: POLITICAL MOTHER at Grand Théâtre
October 26, 2018

Hofesh Shechter's critically acclaimed Political Mother made a stop in Luxembourg last Tuesday and delighted the audience with a fantastic mixture of sound, light and movement. Shechter built on the success of his previous works, Uprising (2006) and In Your Rooms (2007) and provided a unique take into the world of politics and the relation between the people, their leaders and the concepts of political numbness and representation.

BWW Review: OTHELLO at Grand Théâtre
October 20, 2018

One of the most renowned plays in human history. It is hard to meet someone who has not at least heard of the name Othello and, while it is not an obvious favourite among the Shakespearean classics, it does focus on topics that speak directly to our hearts. Luxembourg was, therefore, lucky to host Aurora Fattier's version of this masterpiece.

BWW Review: LA TRAVIATA at Grand Théâtre
October 18, 2018

When they tell you that Verdi's La Traviata is coming to town, you cannot expect anything other than a sold out show. The acclaimed theatre and visual artist Robert Wilson was responsible for the staging and lighting and, as usual, he helped to create a show that was absolutely unique.

There are some days when you feel like playing the piano is the easiest thing in the world. Last Wednesday, the Kinneksbond cultural centre welcomed Romain Souchon, a young pianist of notable talent, who played several interesting versions of well-known classics. There are times when you watch a performer and realize that you could never do what they are doing. Yet there are other times, when we reach such a level of grace and lightness that things simply seem natural.

The duo created the acclaimed Compagnia Baccala after years of theatre and circus experience, and have performed this number more than 700 times in over 50 countries.

BWW Review: THE BEGGAR'S OPERA at Grand Théâtre
September 30, 2018

Luxembourg has welcomed a variety of interesting shows over the last months, but it has been a while since the public had a chance to see something as great as this version of The Beggar's Opera. This famous masterpiece devised by John Gay and Johann Christoph Pepuschm, who some claim to have defined our modern understanding of musical theatre, is often subject to small adaptations, in order to better fit a certain decade or national context. In this version, Robert Carsen and Ian Burton made the choice to set the play in modern Britain, using 21st century costumes and writing references to today's social and political environment.

This was a one-night-only event, directed by Joo Penalva and choreographed by Rui Lopes Graca. In this memorable night, men and women of all ages and nationalities got together to see a remarkable and graceful combination of movement, sound and light.

On 17 June, the admirable Quinta da Ribrafria in the outskirts of Lisbon delighted the public with a creative and though-provoking version of Beauty and the Beast. The play was directed and written by Joo Ascenso, who chose to diverge from the classic Disney format we have come to know, and develop something closer to the original tale, with a stronger emphasis on mythical and philosophical themes.

The concert that everyone has been talking about. On July 9th, Luxembourg welcomed for the first time the Icelandic rock band Kaleo, which has gained significant international attention since 2016. Iceland is really making a name for itself in the music scene, and Kaleo is clearly one of the major pillars of this well-deserved reputation.

Luxembourg is not known its Shakespearean theatre, so you know you will catch the attention of the public when you advertise that Julius Caesar is coming to town. On 25 June, the castle of Bourglinster welcomed the TNT Theatre Company for a one-day-only rendition of the famous play. A thought-provoking masterpiece that makes one reflect about major questions of politics and society. Does the most virtuous of men deserve to rule with unlimited power? Can the ignorant and impressionable be trusted to make the right decisions, or will they eventually lead their country to ruin?

BWW Review: FÊTE DE LA MUSIQUE at Luxembourg City
June 17, 2018

This Friday, 15 June, Luxembourg saw its capital host the festival known as Fete de la Musique, a national event that lasts six days and which welcomes to the streets countless musicians and bands. Most of the performances took place in the centre of Luxembourg City, yet four other neighbourhoods had their own points of interest, bringing the total number of stages up to twenty-six. The Grand Duchy might be small but, for what it lacks in size, it makes up in a vibrant and outgoing international community.
