No room for heroes by Wolfgang Böhmer (music) and Peter Lund (lyrics)
Premiere 13 June 2019. Until 21 July 2019
Günnis clique is really cool. Anyway, finds Günni. Otherwise there’s not much cool in this small town in Central Germany, which Günni’s clique is terrorizing with its tests of courage. But what else can you do when half the city is unemployed and most of the parents are sitting apathetically in front of the TV?
Then comes Fred. Fred is different: He has ideas and
something in your head. Fred will soon be Gunni’s best follower in the
Clique. Hagen might puke. Gunni’s best man was always
Hagen. And if anyone has the right, Günnis’s sister Jenny
to court, then it’s him! In one word: Fred leaves
Hagen hard for honor. Honor is an important keyword in
Dragon heart. What you do, how you fight and above all for what –
these are the big questions that every young person asks society.
and their answers are rather poor. That was the Nibelungs. Then everyone knew what he was fighting for. In worst-case scenario for itself. Siegfried had to die, because at that time it was there was no room for real heroes. Is there this place today?
Or do the good ones still have to die, because the mean ones have to
just can’t stand being so small in spirit?
