I’ll see you at the Resi!

Dear audience,

In cultural events, a seat occupancy of 100% is again permitted.

To ensure that nothing stands in the way of a safe visit to the theater, the 2G regulation (vaccinated or recovered) and the obligation to wear an FFP2 mask will remain in place for the time being.

As of Sunday, April 3, 2022, the 2G regulation and the general mask requirement will no longer apply in Bavaria. This means you no longer need to present proof of vaccination or a negative test result to visit the theater.

We still recommend wearing a medical or FFP2 mask.

Stay healthy!

Gier unter Ulmen (Desire under the elms)

by Eugene O'Neill
Residenztheater, 19.30–21.15 o'clock
Abo 23
Prices G

Ephraim Cabot has built his farm in New England up out of nothing, through hard work and the sweat of his brow and he keeps his three sons in line with Puritan discipline. However, instead of handing on the fruits of their collective toil to the next generation, he introduces the young Abbie to them as his bride, thereby unleashing a tragedy of ancient dimensions. While the elder brothers entirely abandon any hope of inheriting from their father and follow the call of gold to California, a fateful triangle develops between his youngest son   Eben, his father and his step-mother – and Abbie too raises a claim to the farm that Eben is willing to defend by any means.

Marstall, 20.00–22.00 o'clock

Kroetz shows the lives of a couple of cemetery gardeners, Hilde and Otto, who are just as frustrated in bed as they are making wreaths for burials. Into this sad idyll steps Fritz, Hilde’s brother. He has been imprisoned for exhibitionism and has sadistic tendencies that he now attempts to quell with medication. He finds work, a bed and understanding with the two of them. Otto, who cannot find what he needs with his wife, is aroused by how his brother-in-law is different and tries to provoke him into recidivism.

Lulu

by Frank Wedekind in an adaptation by Bastian Kraft
Residenztheater, 20.00–21.45 o'clock
Prices F

The Munich dramatist Frank Wedekind spent over twenty years working on what he called his monster tragedy which, due to harsh censorship, would never be performed in his home city during his lifetime. It was too indecent, too lewd. In Lulu, Wedekind created a snake, a creature «to tempt, to seduce» – and to murder. For her lovers, Lulu is like a screen onto which they can project their desires – whatever a man wants, he will find it in her. And it goes further: Lulu’s seductions drive an entire succession of her lovers in Munich and Paris to their deaths until she ultimately throws herself into death’s arms in the back streets of London.

Der Schiffbruch der Fregatte Medusa (The shipwreck of the frigate Medusa)

by Alexander Eisenach based on the historical report by Jean Baptiste Henri Savigny and Alexandre Corréard
World premiere/ commissioned work
Marstall, 20.00 o'clock
Prices U

In June 1816 the «Medusa», the fastest frigate of its time, sets to sea. Its destination is Saint-Louis in Senegal. There are two hundred and forty people on board – besides the sailors, most of them are soldiers, but they also include the colony’s Governor and his family together with priests, teachers, doctors and engineers. Two days’ journey from their destination the ship runs aground on a sandbank and splits. As there is not enough room for everyone in the lifeboats, a raft is cobbled together for the lifeboats to tow on shore. But as soon as they set off, the rudderless and heavily overloaded raft is left behind by the boats on which the dignitaries are rescuing themselves. Of one hundred and seventeen men only fifteen will survive. Many of them will fall victim to their own comrades because the few goods they were able to save – barrels of wine, sodden biscuits, a few weapons and valuables – are as heavily fought over as the power the make decisions about possible rescue measures.

Erinnerung eines Mädchens (A Girl's Story)

by Annie Ernaux
World Premiere
Marstall, 20.00–21.20 o'clock
Prices V

In her autobiographical memoir «A Girl’s Story», published in 2016, the French writer Annie Ernaux attempts to understand a deeply formative experience in her own life. What happened to her, a young woman aged 18 at the time, in the summer of 1958? Between fragments of memories, diary entries, letters and decades-old photos, the author undertakes an almost forensic analysis of what happened, its effects and the social frameworks and sexual double standards that grant or refuse entirely different forms of «freedom» to men and women respectively. «A Girl’s Story» shows an almost 80-year-old woman painfully confronting sexual shame, impotence and self-empowerment and is – shortly before the #MeToo movement arose – a touching and highly political document of putting an end to silence.

Finsternis

von Davide Enia
Deutschsprachige Erstaufführung
Residenztheater, 19.00–20.00 o'clock
Abo 73
Prices D

Der italienische Schriftsteller Davide Enia wird von seinem deutschen Kollegen Albert Ostermaier zu einem Literaturfestival nach München eingeladen. Dieser schlägt ihm vor, einen Text über die Lage der Flüchtlinge in Süditalien mitzubringen – für den Sizilianer Enia Anlass, auf die Insel Lampedusa zu reisen, die er nur als Urlauber kennt. Spätestens im Oktober 2013 wurde diese durch ein Schiffsunglück mit Hunderten Toten zum erschreckenden Sinnbild des Unvermögens der Europäischen Union, das Sterben der Flüchtenden im Mittelmeer zu verhindern.

Enia verwebt die einschneidenden Erfahrungen auf Lampedusa und den drohenden Verlust des Onkels zu einer menschlichen und dichten Reflexion über die elementare Themen des Menschseins.

Elisabeth Gärtner, a retired architect, has only one more wish: she wants to die. Her beloved husband died of cancer three years ago and without him life has no meaning for her any more. A drug that would allow her to die of her own volition has been refused her. Now the Ethics Council must make a decision on her case. Expert witnesses from the fields of law, medicine and theology argue over the question:  Does a human being have a right to determine their own death? Are doctors allowed to help someone commit suicide? And who do our lives actually belong to? To us? To the state? Or to God?

The director Elsa-Sophie Jach, who recently made her debut at the Residenztheater with her production of Herbert Achternbusch’s «Heart of Glass», brings the outrageous love poetry of «Europe’s first poet» to new life. Known for a directing style characterised by precise language and strong visuals, she hunts down the forgotten remains of Sappho’s poems, condenses them into a chorus and, on a tour through the literary canon together with the Munich techno live band SLATEC, she exposes the systematic erasure of the female voice, its silencing and the need for it to empower itself.

The play «Judgements», which premiered on 10 April 2014 in the Marstall and which was the first play in a German-speaking country to tell the story from the perspective of the loved ones the murder victims left behind, will therefore be restaged by Christine Umpfenbach with a new cast in the form of a re-enactment and be continued up to the present day.

The Three Musketeers, of whom there are actually four, appear and think about their loneliness. Can their famous slogan «One for all and all for one» be explained mathematically? Who is «the one» here? And who are «all»? They transform themselves into their own servants and horses and reconstruct Dumas’s story – and above all they question it. The musketeers are fighting for their lives and the actors are acting as if their lives depend on it.

When the novel «Six of Them» by the émigré author Alfred Neumann, then living in Los Angeles, was published in 1945, it generated considerable controversy in Germany. Based on an article from «Time Magazine» about the leafleting campaign and execution of the members of the White Rose, Neumann created a «freely imagined work» from the lives and actions of the resistance fighters. As he put it: «It’s not about the Scholls. It’s not even about the Möllers, who I invented and whose name, language and nationality are interchangeable. It is purely about presenting an eternal idea.»
