The German productions

Post  operafantomet on Sun Apr 17, 2011 7:34 pm

I know, we have a generic "international productions" thread, but I wanted to create an own for the German productions. Phantom had an extraordinary long run in Hamburg, from 1990-2001. It ran in Stuttgart from autumn 2002-2004, and in Essen in 2005-2007. Here's some of the cast throughout the years, Hamburg first:

Ooooh, you're right! Thanks, I've added him.

Did anyone here see any of the German productions, by the way? Any impressions you'd like to share? Pictures?

I saw the Hamburg production in October 1992, and the Essen one in July 2006. I have very few memories of the former, alas. I remember a lot more of the Essen one, and posted an old review some months ago:

I actually have a question about the Hamburg production- Clearly, it was a phenomenon...but how did it sustain such a long run (since most German productions are only a few years long, as they are really for local audiences)? Did it attract a lot of international tourists because of its size and execution of the production?

I've wondered about the same. And I have no good answer. I mean, beside the West End, Germany has the biggest musical theatre business in Europe. But to survive 11 years continuously in a northern German city is quite a phenomenon.

Closest to the Hamburg success is the Stockholm production. They played for 6 years in total. But they had summer breaks, something Hamburg didn't have. Phantom also appears to have played for a long time in Budapest (the non-replica one), but they're a repertoire theatre and plays at random intervals, with lots of shows in between. So the total number of performances isn't all that impressive compared to theatres playing solely Phantom.

I came across an interesting article today, a Phantom special from New York Magazine. It's stated there that "Mackintosh and Lloyd Webber has already completed the plans to bring Phantom to Tokyo in the spring. Now they're working on Vienna, Sydney, and Munich." Vienna happened, but in the end it opened in Melbourne instead of Sydney, and Hamburg instead of Munich. I don't know how "nailed" those initial plans were, but interesting to see Munich was the original choice. In a way it makes more sense.

Thank you very much operafantomet! It´s really interesting to follow the cast.
Many Mirror Brides were later Christine´s as first Cast.
It´s fascinating how many people are involved in Phantom!

Sorry if this has been commented on before... But I ran across a bunch of clips of the original Hamburg cast earlier today. Surely these are pro-shot? The quality is quite amazing for its age, I would LOVE to see the whole thing. They also seem to be put out by Anna Maria Kaufmann herself, though you never know.

Slavegirls dancing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OgWmWaw2AQ
Angel of Music with Meg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zilZoLoLQjg
Little Lotte/Mirror: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Fi-eb0YhaE
STYDI: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YBI73sfgow
Il Muto: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Gt_MEguuAc

There might be more, but these are the ones I found. I don't think Anna Maria Kaufmann is the most expressive Christine I've seen, and there's even some unsteady notes in AOM, but overall these clips are gorgeous. And finally a good glimpse of that original green-on-green Elissa skirt!

Got a new Hamburg program (playbill) today. It looked identical to the ones I have, but I just had the strongest urge to buy it. The content is the same, no new pictures or articles, but it's listing a cast combo I hadn't seen before:

PHANTOM: Hartwig Rudolz/Tim Tobin
CHRISTINE: Anna Maria Kaufmann/Renée Knapp
RAOUL: Thomas Schulze (!!)
CARLOTTA: Pamela Sanabria/Jennifer Little
ANDRÉ: Scott Gregory
FIRMIN: Woldgang Beigel
MADAME GIRY: Ruth Hale
MEG GIRY: Lucy Potter
PIANGI: Edouard Broussard/Clarence Carter/Peter Prior
REYER: Dietmar Ziegler
LEFEVRE: Peter Prior
BUQUET: Ulrich Talle
AUCTIONEER: Clarence Carter
DON ATTILIO: Bernd Nachbaur
CONFIDANTE: Simone Pohl
INNKEEPER: Peter Graham
WIFE: Corinna A. Jagodie
PAGES: Annette Koch, Carol Lurie
MADAME FIRMIN: Tina Thompson
PRINCESS: Lori Broderick
FIREMEN: Horst Gross, Eberhard Neitzel
SLAVE MASTER: Victor Pesina
FLUNKY: Anthony Sands

BALLET GIRLS: Julie Collins, Eva Hallbeck, Joanna Bates, Petra Baum, Louise Brown, Tracy J. Hayes, Tabitha Dudley, Gabriela Nicolson

SWINGS: Edouard Broussard, Nicolas Dunbar, Florian Giertzuch, Constanze Götze, Jennifer Little, Wolfgang A. Palm, Markus Petsch, Pamela Laurent.

So much of the original cast still present, but some moved a bit around. Also some new faces. I think it's the first listing of Julie Collins, whose Hannibal slavegirl costume is now in my care. But Colby Thomas has not yet joined.

So I'm thinking late 1991 or early 1992? Anyone knows for sure?

I have one umm.. "reference" of Schulze as Raoul, and it is widely considered to be the only "reference" with him in the role. The next year he started playing the Phantom. So I'd say it's late 1991.

Post  operafantomet on Wed Jan 04, 2012 5:54 pm

That seems about right. The only problem is that he for some time shared the role of Raoul (or alternated) with Hartwig Rudolz. That was when Peter Hofman was still the Phantom, in mid 1991. Then Rudolz became the Phantom, and Schulze became Raoul, while the Christines remained the same. Shortly after Anna Maria Kaufmann left, Schulze started alternating with Tim Tobin as the Phantom, and Timothy Breese was cast as Raoul. That was 1992. So late 1991 or early 1992 for the cast seems correct, but I just can't determine which one it is.

1990 - Peter Hofmann - Anna Maria Kaufmann (Renée Knapp) - Hartwig Rudolz
1991 - Peter Hofmann/Hartwig Rudolz - Anna Maria Kaufmann (Renée Knapp) - Hartwig Rudolz/Thomas Schulze
199? - Hartwig Rudolz/Tim Tobin - Anna Maria Kaufmann (Renée Knapp) - Thomas Schulze
1992 - Tim Tobin/Thomas Schulze - Reneé Knapp (Lori Broderick) - Timothy Breese
1993 - Tim Tobin/Thomas Schulze - Colby Thomas (Renée Knapp) - Timothy Breese
1993 - Thomas Schulze - Colby Thomas (?) - Dale Tracy

What happened to Stella AG (the company behind the Hamburg production)? I have a faint memory that Stage Entertainment bought most of Stella's venues in 2002.

Also, I've heard that the opening night in Hamburg was a "disaster", any more info what happened?

Somewhere in 1995-1996, as Tracy became an alternate in 1996.

Rumour's out today in a German newspaper, that Phantom will be going back to Hamburg next year, after Tarzan closes at the Neue Flora Theatre sometime in late 2013.

I'd love for that to happen, just keep Uwe far far away, and if it does, I hope it has a decent run

I do have a question!

I'm looking to find a brochure of the Hamburg original cast. Does anybody know if one was made featuring Peter and Anna? (I can't get over how much I love their voices.)

Rumours are circulating in the German press that Phantom is to return to Hamburg soon, but at the moment this is merely "pure speculation".

More info @ http://www.welt.de/print/die_welt/hamburg/article110880057/Tarzan-geht-kommt-das-Phantom.html
