On New Year's Day, Marie Heeschen will make her role debut as Marzelline in the premiere of Beethoven's Fidelio at Theater Bonn. The production, directed by Volker Lösch, puts a focus on the composer right at the beginning of the Beethoven anniversary year and shows the work’s relevance for our times by referring to the political situation in Turkey.
Dirk Kaftan will conduct the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn and the choir of the Bonn Theater. Marie Heeschen has been a permanent ensemble member in Bonn since the 2016/17 season.
In parallel, Marie Heeschen will perform Maria in Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story until summer 2020. The musical has been running in Bonn in a celebrated production by Erik Petersen under the direction of Daniel Johannes Mayr since September 2019. Praised by Das Opernmagazin as an outstanding actress, "Marie Heeschen gives this figure, which is musically designed as a tragic opera heroine, with her girlish charisma and her wonderfully performed lyrical soprano, the necessary creative depth."
