What is the importance of community theater

Mönchengladbach: Twelve points for the community theater

Mönchengladbach: Twelve points for the community theater

Mönchengladbach 28 theater critics from North Rhine-Westphalia recorded their opinions in questionnaires. As always at the end of a theater season, they did this as part of the critics' survey by the magazine PUR. Some praise for Theater Krefeld / Mönchengladbach fell away, although the big theaters in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Essen received far more approval and the top grades for the best productions also passed Krefeld and Mönchengladbach by.

And such a survey is never representative. But even so, the artists and the theater management are of course happy when the United City Theaters are positively recognized in the survey. There were a total of twelve precise landings, pronounced by seven theater, opera and ballet critics. General music director Graham Jackson received the grade "Best Conductor" twice, once he was nominated for 3rd place and once for 1st place (by Udo-Gustaf Kleff, theater pur). The latter praised Jackson's performance in directing the Verdi opera "Don Carlo".

A singer from the Mönchengladbach ensemble was also honored with laurels: the soprano Dara Hobbs once received the award "Best Singer" for her role as Elisabeth in "Don Carlo".
