Daily News – Neues vom Tage by Hindemith Musiktheater Gelsenkirchen

When two spouses argue, a third is happy.
At least that’s the case with Laura and Eduard.
Shortly after their wedding, the young couple is already facing the end of their love.
But for a successful divorce, a good reason is needed: with the handsome Mr. Hermann, one is quickly found.

Their unhappy marriage takes its course and enjoys the greatest media interest: whether in newspaper reports, TV appearances or a big broadway show – the media devour the young couple and their story. By the time the two realize that they do belong together, however, the public already has a firm grip on their fate.

Paul Hindemith’s “funny opera in three parts” precisely hits the sore spot of media sensationalism between reality show, yellow press and social media.
