Come 2019, Hamburg will boast one more spectacular and extraordinary show: Paramour will cross the Atlantic to premiere in Germany’s musical capital. After the show’s premiere on Broadway in 2016, the honour has fallen to Hamburg to be the first host city outside North America. The city’s tradition-rich Neue Flora theatre offers the perfect setting for a new kind of stage entertainment that combines the best of two of the world’s biggest theatrical producers. Stage Entertainment’s classical elements like music and theatre are paired with the artistic ingenuity of the Québécois powerhouse Cirque du Soleil.
Paramour is set in the golden age of Hollywood entertainment. A star-crossed love triangle develops around the successful director AJ, the up-and-coming actress Indigo and the young piano player Joey. For Indigo it comes down to making a decision between love and career.
The cast of every performance will consist of six musicians, 15 actors and 23 acrobats. Circus acts will include trapeze, trampoline, pyramid and juggling performances. Aerial stunts will partly be carried out above the heads of the audience. The collaboration with Cirque du Soleil doesn’t only promise breakneck artistry but also even more colourful characters and costumes as well innovative lighting and stage decorations.
