Sound and Light. Colors and magnificent effects. Music and drama. Once upon a time there was a little girl who couldn’t get enough of the theatre – the excitement, the stories. Mareike knew from an early age that when she was on stage, she was home. She learned songs and entire plays, and grew up yearning for a life on the stage where she could both express herself, and give something of herself to an audience.
Today, Mareike Wang is a critically acclaimed actor and artist who has excelled in several artistic expressions. At this time, she now brings together her childhood hero, Håkon Berge, as musical arranger, and the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, to embark on a journey to honor a well-loved genre: the musical.
With bubbling energy and narrative, Mareike gives the audience insight into her artistic life – from a little girl with a big dream, to an established performing artist. For Mareike, it was either the West End in London, or Rogaland Theater in Stavanger. There ended up being a return trip to Stavanger.
Mareike Wang, along with Håkon Berge and the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, have been crafting this theatrical piece, and are now ready to show the audience in Stavanger a journey through the major musical classics, mixed with some unknown gems within the genre. Look forward to a musical dream come true!
The concert is a collaboration between Rogaland Theater and Stavanger Symphony Orchestra.
