Watch footage from the new non-replica Wicked production
The show is being revived in Hamburg
Creative possibilities for Wicked are categorically "unlimited", so it's exciting to see a new production of the iconic piece.
Staged at the Stage Theater Neue Flora in Hamburg, the piece begins performances later this year, led by Vajèn van den Bosch as Elphaba with Jeannine Michèle Wacker as Glinda and Naidjim Severina as Fiyero.
The new twist on the tale of The Wizard of Oz is said to feature "an impressive stage design, new effects and newly designed costumes". The piece is directed by Lindsay Posner and features choreography by Fabian Aloise, who did wonderful work on Evita at Regent's Park in 2019, with the team also featuring Jon Bausor (stage design), Moritz Junge (costume design), Sebastian de Domenico (musical supervisor), Lucy Carter (lighting design), John Shivers (sound), Chris Fisher (illusions) and Tal Rosner (video design).
