They're back - more successful than ever before! Acclaimed concerts, even a TV contract beckons for the band "Love Cats" reunited after years apart. But then, the singer Marion disappears without a trace. After an impressive casting, Diana, the new one, turns everybody's head. Again, there is trouble between band leader Alex and his partner Aylin, while bassist Ollie sees his coming out and guitarist Chris makes the acquaintance of jail. The final curtain for the band?
Interspersed with the greatest hits of rock and pop history, "What a feeling - Eine Chance für die Love Cats", the sequel to the comedy-musical by Stephen Ohm, is shown after a successful season in Bonn at the Frankfurt Komödie starting from January 2011.
Harald will take the role of the band leader as the likeable loser and philanderer Alex in some shows.

Two gangs are fighting for supremacy in the slums of New York: the "Jets" (native Americans) and the "Sharks" (immigrated Puerto Ricans). Against this background of aggression, Bernstein and his co-authors set the love story between Tony and Maria, freely based on Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet", which, in this hostile atmosphere, has to become a tragedy.
Harald will be Diesel, one of the "Jets", in this play.
Music: Leonard Bernstein Book: Arthur Laurents Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim

Passionate, mysterious, breathtaking, contradictory: Thus fascinate not only the works of Gustav Klimt, but also the life of the most famous Austrian painter.

"Gustav Klimt - The Musical" (Music: Gerald Gratzer, Book: Niki Neuspiel, Sissi Gruber) 2009 is another world premiere for the Festspiele Gutenstein: The area of conflict in the paintings of Gustav Klimt, the Jugendstil-costumes, the musical-rock-music and the multimedia-based décor join together as a mixture of arts.

an Austrian painter and graphic artist (1868-1918), important representative of the Jugendstil in Vienna, co-founder of the Vienna Secession and the Vienna Werkstaette, designed also jewellery, glasses, ceramics, wallpapers, fabrics and furniture, created stage décors, posters, postcards, illustrated books and magazines.
