Last night before I went to sleep, I was just browsing the web and I came across the new trailer for Schikaneder: Das Musical, a German language musical that is currently playing in Vienna. Stephen Schwartz, the writer of the music of the world-renowned musical, Wicked also wrote the music for Schikaneder.
This trailer was amazing. Goodness knows that I had wanted to go to see the show before I had seen the trailer. Now that want has only been amplified.
The costumes are amazing. Seriously. And the music? If you like Mozart, you will definitely like the music from Schikaneder.
Some familiar faces to some might be Mark Seibert (who plays Emanuel Schikaneder; was Fiyero in original German production of Wicked, der Tod in Elisabeth, and Count von Krolock in Tanz der Vampire), Toby Joch (playing Ensemble/Cover Johann Friedel; was understudy Raoul in PHANTOM Oberhausen), and Katie Hall (playing Maria Anna Miller; was Christine in PHANTOM London).
