HEDDA

Senior physician Jorgen Tesman (Godehard Giese) lays the world at the feet of his wife Hedda (Susanne Wolff). But with purchases such as a monstrous villa in the forest and with a view of the city, he has completely overstretched himself. Now the newly married couple is expecting an important visit. The neurologist and head physician Prof. Dr. Brack (Bruno Cathomas) is to make Jorgen his successor - no matter what the cost. However, two other guests join the dinner party that no one would have expected: Jorgen's ex-lover Thea (Katharina Marie Schubert) and Hedda's great love Eilert (Wanja Mues). In a seething mixture of love, envy, guilt and betrayal, deep abysses come to light in the course of the evening - and Hedda and Jorgen's future, their marriage and Jorgen's career are put in grave danger.

One night that changes everything: The characters in the theatre adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's famous play "Hedda Gabler", which the Norwegian playwright wrote in 1890 during his voluntary exile in Germany and which premiered in 1891 at the Residenztheater in Munich, present themselves as up-to-date and modern as rarely before. With a furious production - sensual, fast and explosive - Grimme Award winner Andreas Kleinert leaves the stage exactly 125 years later with Hedda and brings the historical material out into the world and into the present. A very special cinema-theatre experience.
