Volksoper Wien

Kiss me, Kate

In German language

Conductor: Guido Mancusi
Director: Bernd Mottl
Choreography: Alonso Barros
Choir production: Thomas Böttcher

Opening night beckons for Shakespeare’s „The Taming of the Shrew” – and it’s the very pair playing Kate and Petruchio who both quarrel and cannot bear to be parted in real life.
Poetcomposer Cole Porter together with Samuel und Bella Spewack, the musical’s creators combined the original play so charmingly with the plot that the show was destined to be a success.
Kiss me, Kate triumphed as the first musical brought to the Volksoper by Marcel Prawy in 1956, and five different productions have since appeared on the Volksoper stage. Bernd Mottl’s colourful and exuberant 2012 production will return 2020.
