Behind the scenes at Moerbisch 2014
The video below has just been released. It gives us a look at preparations for the 2014 performance of "Anatevka" and events surrounding it. I was pleased to see that a lot of the original "Fiddler on the Roof" music was retained.
But what I liked best was that we are given a few good shots of a cheery Schellenberger. And she is looking remarkably good for a lady in her late 50s. That North German climate she grew up in is very kind to complexions.
The poor thing looked quite tense in the 2013 interview -- understandably as it was her first year of running the show there. She obviously felt under great pressure to get everything right. She did make some substantial changes, I gather. Anyway 2013 did apparently go well so in the 2014 interview she is back to what I believe is her normal cheerful self. Good to see.
No subtitles, unfortunately.
