Premiere Die Großherzogin von Gerolstein | Staatstheater Kassel
Six weeks of intensive rehearsals seem to have snuck by, and all of a sudden I find myself overhearing the 5 minute call as if in a dream. Perhaps, with hindsight, it was a mistake to try and bake and decorate shortbread biscuits for the entire cast and crew on premiere day (in the shape of medals for my troops of course). I open the dressing room window and am hit by the cold Kassel night air, which whips up my wig and ruffles my false eyelashes and reminds me that this is no sleeping dream. But boy, what reverie.
