The next premiere:
by Anton Tschechow
Director: Nicolas Stemann
Let’s begin with an inventory: The cherry orchard stands for beauty. It is vehicle of tradition and self-assurance. It is priceless and immaterial. But the cherry harvest also used to be a profitable, rock-solid currency. It secured the income of the landowner Lyubov Ranjevskaya and her family as well as giving them a prominent position in society. But their prosperity is now in jeopardy. The market price of cherries is plummeting. What’s more, the family’s cultural and creative dominance is in decline. Others want a slice of the cake. The merchant and social upstart Lopachin, for example, who has plenty of new money to burn and who has picked up the scent of big business. Or vagabonds passing through, people of no fixed abode who try to assert their claims. There does not seem to be a way to make common cause among all these factions. The obstacles between them are insurmountable. Everyone sticks to their guns, and to their version of the history and vision of the cherry orchard.
After productions of “The Merchant of Venice” and the premiere of Jelinek’s “Wut”, resident director Nicolas Stemann now brings Chekhov to the stage, which marks a return to his roots: his final-year assignment at the Theaterakademie Hamburg in 1997 was “TerrorSpiel”, a play based on “The Seagull” by Anton Chekhov.

by William Shakespeare
Director: Christopher Rüping
He was only 17 when he turned his back to the world. He started reading books and withdrawing from his friends, he changed his eating habits and began to provoke the women in his surrounding. Eventually he blamed his parents and all the other grown-ups for the degeneration of a world that could only be saved by its own destruction. He made this his personal task. – In these or in similar words Hamlet’s story could be told if it happened today. Uncompromising and calculating – this is how Hamlet prepares his holy war. If man is not good enough, man has to go. If there is no hope left in this world, the world must go.
Starting in the season 2016/17, Christopher Rüping is an in-house director at the Kammerspiele. He presents his interpretation of “Hamlet” – Shakespeare’s work about a young radical, too intelligent to fall prey to desperation while his cold anger gives way to destruction – in Kammer 2.
