Notes & Reviews:
Always Christmas!' A Christmas skeptic experiences a miraculous transformation through music and silence, through a girl and fairy tales, through sickness and recovery in the weeks of advent. The short story '7 Minutes before Christmas' for narrator and flute by Michael Dangl after the eponymous piece of music by Pavel Karmanov is accompanied by music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Astor Piazolla, Pyotr Pospelow, Pavel Karmanov and others. Michael Dangl, recitation and piano, and Maria Fedotova, flute, exude the best Christmas atmosphere in a special way. Michael Dangl Michael Dangl has been a member of the ensemble of the Theater in der Josefstadt, Vienna, since 1998. He received training in his parents' actors' group 'Karawane Salzburg' from his earliest childhood on. Further commitments have been to leading roles at the theatres in Salzburg, Hamburg, Cologne, Munich and Koblenz. Leading roles in cinema and TV films, 10 years at Reichenau Festival, productions for radio and readings of his own programmes underline the versatility of Dangl's artistic work. Michael Dangl has already published two novels: Rampenflucht (2010) and Schöne Aussicht Nr. 16 (2012). In the 2013/14 season, Michael Dangl is acting in Wie im Himmel in the Theater in der Josefstadt and in Ziemlich beste Freunde in the Kammerspiele der Josefstadt.
