The Play "Eurydice" by Sarah Ruhl is a retelling of the tragic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice as told from the oft unexplored perspective of the title character herself. It was the season opener for Leipzig's English language production company, English Theatre Leipzig, and SOLD OUT all three shows of the opening weekend! Director Julia Kragh, Assistant Director (also our co-host!) Justin as well as many members of the cast, including the musical accompanist, Parwaneh join Matthew as they look back on the process that brought the group to a successful opening weekend!
On this episode, we are drinking LSM Mystica Wermut - For this aperitif, LSM combines sparkling silvaner grapes with aromatic traminer grapes from their winemaking friends Bohme & Daughter from the Saale-Unstrut wine-growing region, refined with herb-flowery potent vermouth, mugwort and citrus fruit as well as herbs. The product is a harmoniously complex vermouth wine with fresh fruit finish!
The Leipziger Spirituosen Manufaktur, a young Leipzig company, stands for uncompromising quality, sustainable raw materials and artisan art. All their products are hand-crafted with the aim of sourcing all raw materials from sustainable and regional sources - out of conviction. Sophisticated production methods and great attention to detail make their spirits a special taste experience, developed and produced from a combination of passion and science.
A podcast for thinkers, wanderers and drink'n'ponderers.
