October 7: St. Petersburg Opera: Peter Kendall Clark ist Sweeney Todd in Stephen Sondheims Oper , mit der die Saison beginnt

  In this week’s show, Susanne Nielsen had the pleasure to speak with New York based Baritone Peter Kendall Clark, who is sure to make a magnificent Sweeney Todd, the lead in Stephen Sondheims “dark” Operetta by the same title. St. Petersburg Opera opens its season October 5,7,and 9, 2012 with this perfect offering for Bay area opera and operetta fans.

 Sweeney Todd – Der teuflische Barbier aus der Fleet Street ist Tim Burtons 2007 entstandener US Film, der das gleichnamige Musical einem breiteren Publikum zugaenglich machte. Der Film lief nur kurz, aber das Broadway Musical aus dem Jahr 1979 von Stephen Sondheim ist die Geschichte des aus Rache mordenden Barbiers (im Film war dies Johnny Depp).

In der deutschen Film-Fassung wurden nur die Dialoge synchronisiert, die Lieder  in der Originalsprache mit deutschen Untertiteln wiedergegeben. Wer nun Peter Kendall Clark auf der Buehne des Palladium Theaters sieht, gross und recht dueseter perfekt dargestellt, der erlebt diese Geschichte auf Englisch gesungen und in einer Jahreszeit , wo es ueberall auf Halloween zugeht, eine Jahreszeit , in der sich besonders in Europa, denn die Geschichte spielt in England, „die Nebel drehn“. Am 5,7(mit sonntags- Matinee um 14 uhr) und Dienstag Abend gibt es noch karten an der Abend bzw Nachmittagskasse eine Stunde vor der Auffuehrung, und on-line www.stpeteopera.org.

        Sweeney Todd Interview : Peter Kendall Clark

                              (photo The Photo Ninja) Peter Kendall Clark als Sweeney Todd

                                                                       
 Sweeney Todd ist ein Musical mit der Musik und den Gesangstexten von Stephen Sondheim. Das Buch schrieb Hugh Wheeler nach einem gleichnamigen Schauspiel von Christopher G. Bond aus dem Jahr 1973. Die Broadway-Uraufführung fand am 1. März 1979 im Uris Theatre, New York statt. In den Hauptrollen waren Len Cariou und Angela Lansbury zu sehen. Nach 557 Vorstellungen fiel der letzte Vorhang am 29. Juni 1980. Die Erstaufführung im Londoner West End fand am 2. Juli 1980 im Theatre Royal Drury Lane statt. Harold Prince führte in beiden Inszenierungen die Regie.
Die deutschsprachige Erstaufführung erfolgte am 11. April 1985 an den Städtischen Bühnen Freiburg.


Sondheim selbst bezeichnete das Werk als tiefschwarze Operette. Die Partitur ist durchkomponiert, es wird fast alles gesungen. Für die Show suchte Sondheim nach Inspiration in der Musik aus Horrorfilmen oder anderen spannenden Filmen. Er fand sie besonders in den Soundtracks von Bernard Herrmann. So ertönt beispielsweise gegen Ende des Stückes in der Todesszene des Richters ein Teil des bekannten Soundtracks des Alfred Hitchcock Klassikers Psycho. Sweeney Todd gewann 1979 neun Tony Awards.
            
Die dramatische Handlung findet man auf Wikipedia.de: Benjamin Barker, frischgebackener Vater einer Tochter und glücklich verheiratet, wird aufgrund einer Intrige durch den mächtigen Richter Turpin unschuldig angeklagt und verbannt. Benjamins Frau Lucy und die Tochter Johanna geraten unter die Obhut von Richter Turpin. Lucy, getrennt von ihrem Mann, vom Richter vergewaltigt und am Ende ihrer Kräfte, stürzt tief ab und verschwindet, Benjamins Tochter wird daraufhin von Richter Turpin adoptiert.
(photo:The Photo Ninja) Sweeney Todd und Mrs.Lovett : Peter Kendall Clark,Buffy Equality Baggot)                                                                         
 Die Handlung gleicht der vieler Gruselgeschichten, immer mit Humor und Grausamkeit , die einander zu umschlingen versuchen. Dem Schicksal kann Sweeney Todd und auch seine durch die Umstaende noch lebende Frau nicht entrinnen. 

An einem sonnigen Tag im September sprach ich mit Sweeney Todds Hauptdarsteller Peter Kendall Clark, der in Groesse und Typus genau seiner Rolle  und was man sich darunter vorstellt, entspricht, auch wenn er noch lange nicht im Kostuem  auf der Buehne , sondern in den ersten Proben ist, zunaechst noch einige Ansagen, dann kommen wir zu dem Interview:

Baritone PETER KENDALL CLARK is a distinguished interpreter of contemporary opera and musical theater who also excels in traditional concert and operatic repertoire. He has created roles in numerous world premieres, notably Jehovah in Mark Blitzstein’s Cain, for which the New York Times singled out his singing as “stylish and properly stentorian”. Mr. Clark has sung much of the standard baritone operatic repertoire with many of New York City’s local companies such as Chelsea Opera, Bronx Opera, Liederkranz Opera and One World Symphony. He has enjoyed return engagements with regional companies such as Caramoor, Ash Lawn, and Skylight Opera Theatre. In the 2010-11 season he was heard as the Count in Chelsea Opera’s Le nozze di Figaro, Donner in Liederkranz Opera’s Das Rheingold, as Onegin in Eugene Onegin with Opera Slavica, the High Priest in Samson et Dalila with Hudson Opera Theater and as Don Alfonso (aka Don Fonzarello) in Skylight Opera’s new “Mad Men” version of Cosi fan tutte. As a musical theater singer, Mr. Clark has equal affinity with dramatic, comic and romantic roles.  Mr. Clark, who is an accomplished violinist, made his professional theater debut in Fiddler on the Roof as the Fiddler who actually played the violin. He debuted at Skylight Opera Theatre in 2009 as the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance, and has appeared at Ashlawn Opera as Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun, Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, and as King Arthur Camelot.

Nach Transsylvania kommt nun auch Frankenweenie ins Kino, unsere Meinung dazu lesen Sie am Wochenende, kinderfreundlich sind diesen Herbst wenige der Filme. Auch wenn man bei Tim Burton weiss, dass es eine dunkle Ader geben muss, hoffen wir instaendig, dass jetzt nicht viele kleine Kinder ihre eigenen Tierchen wieder ausgraben wollen, und wir bitten Eltern doch den Unterschied zwischen Film und (elektrischer) Realitaet zu erklaeren...

Taken Two findet Liam Neesen wieder im gleichen Fall wie bei #1, aber diesmal geht es durch die exotische Tuerkei mit viel,viel Action.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower liess so manchen mit traenenreicher Nostalgie.
Channelside Kino hat seine Pforten geschlossen, Brandon AMC ist total schoen, alles neu und super bequem seit wir das letztemal dortwaren. The Master ist ein Film, der einen das Fuerchten jeder organisierten Sekte lehren kann. Aber auch die frage nach Willen und Verletzbarkeit stellt.
Lawless noch immer empfehlenswert!Arbitrage auch.

OPER: www.stpeteopera.org bringt an diesem Freitag die erste Oper der Saison, eine Operette zum Fuerchten, Sweeney Todd.
__________________________________________________________________

Cirque du Soleil ist mit Kooza im Anzug auf Tampa. Dort gibt es bald wieder eine Auffuehrung voller Wagemut und Akrobatik.
                                                                                                                                   
The equipment is as simple as it gets: eight chairs and a pedestal. But in this act, the artist uses them to create a 23-foot tower on which to perform a balancing act that displays the human body at the very peak of condition and muscular control.

For the first time in 7 years Cirque du Soleil returns to St. Petersburg
With a big top production

KOOZA Opens November 8, 2012 for a limited engagement Under the white Big Top at Tropicana Field
St Petersburg, FL – Aug. 31, 2012- Cirque du Soleil is thrilled to return to St Petersburg with its big top production, KOOZA. The critically-acclaimed show opens Thursday, November 8 for a limited engagement under the white Big Top at Tropicana Field.

Since its premiere in April of 2007, KOOZA has charmed close to 4 million spectators in North America and Japan. KOOZA will be the 4th big top production to visit the area since 2002.
Tickets are available online at cirquedusoleil.com/kooza.
About KOOZA
Written and directed by David Shiner, KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil that combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor.
The name KOOZA is inspired by the Sanskrit word “koza,” which means“box,” “chest” or “treasure,” and was chosen because one of the underlying concepts of the production is the idea of a “circus in a box.”
“KOOZA is about human connection and the world of duality, good and bad,”Shiner said. “The tone is fun and funny, light and open. The show doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it’s very much about ideas, too. As it evolves we are exploring concepts such as fear, identity, recognition and power.”
The show starts with The Trickster bursting onto the scene like a jack-in-a-box right in front of The Innocent, and that is just the first of many surprises to follow. The Innocent’s journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Heimloss, the Pickpocket, the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.
Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world.
