For the 2010 summer season, Hilke Bultmann has once again written a schlageretta for the Gandersheimer Domfestspiele. Instead of a decade – for example the Fifties in Petticoat und Minirock, or the Sixties in Komm gibt mir deine Hand – a musical genre is the foundation this time, swing à la Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. The three giants of showbusiness performed together as the “Rat Pack” in Las Vegas – talking, drinking and captivating audiences while singing about love in all its facets.
Fliege mich zum Mond deals with the topic of love and all its consequences. Three old friends meet again when attending a wedding. A fair amount of time has passed since their last meeting. So there is enough to talk about, especially considering the occasion and especially concerning love. The bridal couple themselves spark some questions. And of course, the women of the wedding party contribute to the topic of conversation.
“You Are My Lucky Star”, “That’s Amore”, “All Of Me”, “My Funny Valentine”, “Stormy Weather”, “Night and Day”, “Everybody Loves Somebody”, “Witchcraft”, “I Get A Kick Out Of You” and countless other songs: the repertoire of the three exceptional singers is nearly inexhaustible. Some of these songs can be heard, as well as “Fly Me To The Moon”, of course.
“The Gandersheimer Domfestspiele have got the hang of the art of the musical summer entertainment. This is once again proven by the new musical revue Fliege mich zum Mond, which was performed for the first time in the most beautiful summer weather on Friday in front of the cathedral. Playwright Hilke Bultmann has again succeeded in brewing an exciting mixture of music and theatre…” (Northeimer Neueste Nachrichten)
