Franz Lehár’s 1905 operette transforms into a 50% burlesque and 90% crazy musical. I say 90% crazy because there is actually still a sweet story underneath all this madness. And the music itself, masterfully transformed from operette to musical by maestro Petter S. Kragstad, truly comes to new life here… I was hired to create all the electronic parts of the music. Because this all ends in a big, bizarre and burlesque trance party… Once again it was great to work with director Svein Sturla Hungnes and an almost ridiculously talented cast, featuring Herborg Kråkevik, Hans Marius Hoff Mittet, Anders Hatlo, Trond Høvik, among many other amazing people! This was also my first job for Oslo Nye Teater, a place I quickly became very fond of, and hope to work a lot more with in the future.
