Helge Arnoldt

Helge Arnoldt It all started with my first show „The Phantom of the Opera“ back in 1990 when I fell in love with musical theatre at the spot. It lasted ever since. Many shows later, with different productions worldwide and sometimes outstanding performances, I decided that I’d like to share my passion and I look forward to your feedback on my reviews.

BWW Review: MARK SEIBERT - MUSICALS at Ebertbad (Oberhausen)
March 11, 2021

After his studio concert Mark Seibert decided to do a live streaming concert at the Ebertbad (Oberhausen) on Valentine’s Day, which was produced by SOUND OF MUSIC and for which he invited Marle Martens and Thomas Holer. Both guests have been working with Mark Seibert in many shows. This is why they were putting the highlights of ELISABETH, DANCE OF THE VAPMIRES and MOZART together in medleys. Although none of these shows  have made it across the pond so far (DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES failed in 2003 due to different reasons), all songs enjoy great popularity in Germany and Austria.

Carolin Fortenbacher cannot be stereotyped. Once you think that you fully understand her and you can pigeonhole her, she’ll surprise you the next time. This is why she has been doing different shows since 1985 such as “West Side Story”, “Man of La Mancha”, “Pirates of Penzance”, “Next to Normal” or “Mamma Mia”, just to name a view.

BWW Review: PRETTY WOMAN at Stage Theater at the Elbe River
October 6, 2019

A film adaptation on stage is always be trapped between different expectations: It can be too close to the movie or new settings or/and new songs may leave the audience unsatisfied. This show manages this fine line. Although I haven't seen the film for years, I am surprised how many details and phrases I recognised and which are used to bring the movie alive onstage.

BWW Review: DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES at Theater des Westens, Berlin
April 1, 2019

Whenever one of my US friends asks me about a successful German musical, it is for sure "Dance of the Vampires" that comes immediately to my mind. It was Jim Steinman (music) and Michael Kunze (lyrics) created the musical adaption of Roman Polanski's film from 1967. The show premiered in 1997, and has been running - with some short breaks - in Germany and Austria ever since.
