How does one approach a work with such a long tradition as Jedermann? The two directors Julian Crouch and Brian Mertes have sought their very own path to realising the mystery play on Cathedral Square, inspired both by the past and the future. The production of their predecessor Christian Stückl was seen for eleven years on Cathedral Square. With their version, the directing duo from the USA and England want to return to the roots.

Ideally we would like to be able to meet each of you in person in order to tell you what Jedermann means to us and how we are approaching our production. However, as our rehearsals have now begun and these are demanding our full attention, we regret that this will simply not be possible. We therefore hope that this will offer you some insight into what we are doing.

Sven-Eric Bechtolf about the 2013 Theatre Program

7359! This is the number which the Goddess of Good Luck makes appear in the dreams of the “dissolute cloverleaf” – a carpenter, a cobbler and a tailor – in order to trick her rival the Love Fairy by making them win the lottery. An evil spirit is at work, preying on young men and leading them into forbidden debauchery, while rumours persist of a comet about to plunge to the Earth. An innocent young French peasant girl is visited by the Virgin Mary and promptly strides into battle against the English. A rich man unexpectedly encounters Death, the Devil and all sorts of other symbolic characters. Two pairs of lovers on the run in a forest find themselves tricked by elves and fairies. A beautiful orphan is pursued by a witch and taken in by dwarves while a computer-controlled arm from the automobile industry develops a menacing life of its own. Such are the remarkable events in the 2013 theatre programme.

We are confident that many surprises are awaiting you in the programme of the 2013 Festival summer. A dominant theme is formed by the works of Wagner and Verdi: operas from their middle and later periods are being staged in new productions while select early operas are being performed in concert.
