Staatstheater Karlsruhe bringt Monty Python Musical SPAMALOT auf die Bühne
by Iris Moebius - Sep 15, 2015

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...)
