Change is the key word to describe the theater that Fran Wedeking practices, after each of his representations he always performs some sort of modification and there are always new layers to decipher. Let us not forget two of the most important architects of this great musical, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater. The show is based on the dramatic genre and is considered an intense and provocative musical show.
Since November 2009, the musical is being represented by a new young group of actors who give life to the characters in this harsh history. The musical “Spring Awakening” addresses the problems that arise as the youngsters grow. Romantic relationships of a teen who finds his first love, repressed emotions, sexuality and puritanism are some of the aspects through which this musical presents. Sheik and Sater´s songs reflect on the typical problems of puberty: the verve and audacity of youth, defying parental authority and acting as a rebel against social norms that adults attempt to impose . The musical “Spring Awakening” tells the story of a group of friends: Melchior, Moritz and Wendla. A real story that you could have happened to you.
The new show is directed by Somogyi Szilard, who aims to implement and adapt the dramatic genre to the modern world of musicals. The show is interactive and the viewer must reflect on certain aspects of it and draw his own conclusions. The components of the Budapest Broadway Studio are the artists who perform the work. They also learned a lot about themselves during the tests, according to their own testimony, as they were concerned and affected by the public´s reaction at the intensity of their work. Thus, “Spring Awakening” is a show which is entertaining but also makes you examine your own conscience soul.
The performances will take place on January 14 and February 9.10. The site chosen for the occasion is the room of Operetta Stage Studio Theatre in Budapest. The show lasts for 2 hours and 40 minutes, with a pause. The ticket price is very economical and no more than 5 âŹ.

If you are close to Budapest on the 17th of January 2012, you will have the opportunity to attend the first presentation of 2012 of the fantastic operetta Gypsy Love. The emblematic Budapest Operetta and Musical Theatre hosts 8 performances until the 23rd of February of one of the most exotic and fun shows of the moment, which has already coquetted the hearts of locals and tourists visiting the Hungarian capital.
Budapest is undoubtedly one of the most charming European capitals; its architecture, customs and food, are an extra incentive to visit the largest city in Hungary. Gipsy Love is a great plan, not only for opera lovers, but also for those who enjoy music entertaining, dances and songs among many other emotions.
The Budapest Operetta hosts such native operettas based on Hungarian history and contemporary works, always trying to entertain as much as possible and investing in young talent.
The clash of cultures in the style of Love Story is the main theme of this operetta. Set in a distant land in rural Transylvania, where Romanians, Hungarians and Gypsies live together. The beautiful Zorika is the protagonist of this story. Daughter of Peter Dragoje, a rich feudal lord, Zorika must follow the plans of her father who is dedicated to making preparations to marry her to the son of a wealthy farmer neighbor of the family, Gabor. A very suitable marriage, taking into accounts the social class Zorika and Gabor belong to.
But as expected the thing is not so simple. JĂłzsi, Zorikaâs gypsy love from childhood, returns to the city to disrupt the agreed ceremony. This violinist gets achieved his goal and Zorika escaped with him with the nomadic Gypsies. The problem does not end there. Llona completes the loving quartet, whose discord and misunderstandings make us vibrate.
The musicalâs lesson is clear, above all hatred that can arise between different cultures, it is the love what manages to create peace and understanding.
We´ll have to wait until the last minutes of the show to get to know its outcome, but until then we will enjoy of dances, heels, beautiful songs and all the color of the fantastic dresses and costumes of the actors and actresses.
The performance lasts three hours with an intermission, but in reality, you wonât want it to end. What is certain is that youâll want to stay stuck or glued to your seat, you´ll feel like leaving the theater. You can buy your tickets for this great show on the Internet.
