Vera-Lotte Boecker awarded the German Theatre Prize DER FAUST 2023 as “Performer Musical Theatre”! Congratulations!
The jury’s reasoning for honouring Vera-Lotte Boecker as Nadja in BLUTHAUS, Bavarian State Opera Munich, a production of the Bavarian State Opera and the Residenztheater Munich, states:
“Vera-Lotte Boecker as Nadja in Georg Friedrich Haas’ “Bluthaus” is at the centre of a disturbing story about incest and murder. With the utmost virtuosity and intensity, vocally and dramatically outstanding, she takes the audience on a journey through hell and transforms the most difficult musical vocal lines into feverish curves of focussed energy.
The way she is haunted by inner demons while trying to sell her parents’ house and encounters her father’s abuse in the estate agent for a second time takes her to the limits of what is possible and bearable. Her complete concentration and dedication make Vera-Lotte Boecker’s play an event.”
The livestream of the award ceremony on 25 November 2023 from the Thalia Theatre in Hamburg is available in full length as a recording in the 3sat media library for one year. Actor Felix Knopp hosted the evening.
