Building on the success of “Rumpelstilzchen” in 2017, the Théâtres de la Ville have turned to another favourite story for a follow-up twisted fairytale.
Luxembourg author Jeff Schinker has adapted “Rapunzel” into Luxembourgish as “Rabonzel” (photo: boshua) and created a modern myth in which the heroine with the iconic hair dreams of becoming a famous singer. Helping her to achieve that goal is a mysterious character called Lone, described as a casting agent and hypocritical sorcerer “whose intentions remain dubious…”
Charles Muller directs the production and Grammy-winning composer Gast Waltzing has written the music. The show is in Luxembourgish with English surtitles and is aimed at children over the age of 6. The weekend performances are at 5 p.m. to accommodate the younger audience.
