DEBUT AS KABANICHA AT KOMISCHE OPER IN BERLIN

 

Some job offers you cant turn down. I was on my way from IKEA when my agent called and asked if I could jump in as Kabanicha that evening. 
I had not yet sung it  but was learning it. After four hours of coaching I turned on the lights on the music stand and started to sing.

AN ERDA WITH DIGNITY
AND A MYSTICAL SOUND

Karin Lovelius makes her role debut as Erda with dignity and an almost mysical sound in dialogue with Der Wanderer.

A HERODIAS FULL OF HATE AND ANXIETY 

You cant sing or act any better than this; the way Michael Weinius as Herodes and Karin Lovelius as Herodias fills every gesture, every note, every look and every step with hate, cynicism, greed and anxiety and contempt for mankind in a preoccupied self. It is music theatre at the peak of what is possible because their art of expression gives the music and the theatre equal weight
