1 - ORIGINAL CAST DRESDEN - DER MANN MIT DEM LACHEN - (CD) 
HITSQUAD


England at the beginning of the 18th century is full of intrigue and luxury, privileges and injustices, love and crime -actually the perfect setting for a musical. Victor Hugo must have had a similar opinion - in 1869 he published whatcame closest to a musical in royal France: a novel that dramatized the very same drama. Lhomme qui rit (the manwith the laugh) is made of the stuff that makes good music - a story between dream and reality that plays reality andsplendor piece by piece against each other.The focus is on Gwynplaine, a hero who is initially one thing above all: disfigured. His face, distorted into a horriblepermanent grin (which would later also scare countless Batman fans) gives the piece its name and a place on variousfairs. However, when it turns out that the hero is the son and heir of an honored lord, he finds himself trapped in thegap between rich and poor. Intoxicated by the splendor and weariness of the English aristocracy, he soon realizesthat in this strange world, not everything that glitters is gold.Adapted for the musical stage, THE MAN WITH THE LAUGH now turns into a musical epic that further emphasizes theemotionality of the story. The first performance of the Dresden State Operetta brings the English court and itssubordinates to life in thirty different major and minor roles, as well as in the in-house choir and in a sixty-pieceorchestra. Between lashing sea storms, cruel torture, caricature of the nobility and the pain of the soul of a personrejected by society, everything is described and felt, as depicted in Victor Hugo's novel.In addition to the dialogues by Tilmann von Blomberg, it is Frank Nimsgern's compositions and their interaction withthe lyrics of Alexander Kuchinka that emphasize Gwynplaine's role as a walking metaphor. In his representation of thecivilian population in the face of the rich and beautiful - an identity that is constantly changing in the eye of thebeholder - he becomes the perfect personification of hybrid instrumentation. The result is a mixture of pomp and popwith quotes from the Baroque and tailor-made leitmotifs that carry the juxtaposition of guilt and atonement, uglinessand evil itself. After all, only those who do evil are ugly, as the second act reveals.
