Comeback of the velvet paw spectacle "Cats": Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece conquers the Ronacher in the slightly modernized German-language original version from September 2019.
The Cats are back! It's still the same junkyard in London, the same full moon in front of Tower Bridge, the same eerily shining cat's eyes: to the unforgettable melodies of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Rum Tum Tugger (Dominik Hees), the twins Mungojerry (Andrea Luca Cotti) and Rumpelteazer (Anna Carina Buchegger), the beautiful snow-white Victoria (Hannah Kenna Thomas), and Grizabella (Ana Milva Gomes), the outcast, aged diva, who performs the greatest hit of the musical with "Memory", emerge from the dark.
They all gather at the junkyard on this magical full moon night. It is the traditional Jellicle Ball, where Old Deuteronomy, the shaggy old ringleader of the cat clique, intuitively chooses one of them to disappear into the afterlife for rebirth.
Ein neuer Cast gibt die illustre Bande der Jellicle Cats – allen voran die Publikumslieblinge Ana Milva Gomes als Grizabella, Dominik Hees als Rum Tum Tugger oder Felix Martin als Gus, der Theaterkater / Bustopher Jones.
More than 73 million people in 30 countries and 16 languages worldwide have seen this exceptionally fascinating musical. The German-language premiere was held immediately after London and New York in Vienna, where it ran for seven years without a break. Now, the musical returns to Vienna and celebrates its premiere in September 2019 – as a revised original production.
