Facebook is being a little bitchy at the moment, apparently. :p
So I'm posting these photos here, too. Sorry. ;-) (With a little more commentary though. *g*)

So, Sister Act yesterday...


SA-Operettenhaus

The 2nd time (and probably last, at least for a very looong time now it's leaving Hamburg...) I saw this musical. It was pretty much a perfect evening. <3 The show was absolutely fantastic, of course!! I enjoyed it every bit as much as the last time, maybe even more. *g* It's just so much fun and leaves you all in a happy mood. :-) Although it might also leave you a bit blind after all that glittering in the last scene... LOL ;-)

Castlist of the evening:
SA-cast

I had the same cast for Shank, Mary Patrick, Eddie and Monsignore as last year. The rest was completely different, which made for a nice change. And they all were brilliant! Afterwards at the stagedoor I didn't only get to meet the 3 people I had hoped for (namely Cusch, Tetje and Armin) but also some more as a "bonus". :D *yay*

Stagedoor pics )

Well, all in all a lovely evening was had and I'm sad to see the show leave Hamburg this Sunday... :-(

- Dentist appointment tomorrow. *ugh* Definitely not keen on that. :-/

- I still have no placement for an internship... This sucks big time, especially as the internship period is actually supposed to start on 3 September already, which only gives me 2 more weeks now to find something... *is deperate* Seems pretty unlikely, when so far I wasn't able to find anything in the past 8-9 weeks, right? *facepalm* I have one more interview on Monday (please keep your fingers crossed again!! pleeeaaase), but if that doesn't work out, frankly I don't know what to do... :-/

- On the weekend I finally managed to "update" my framed stagedoor photos. :D Had to take 6 older pictures out to fit 3 of the new London ones in and it was really hard to arrange them so they all would fit into the frame... ;-) It seriously took me an hour or so. o_o *lol* But I'm quite happy with the result now. :-)

musicalframe-neu
(Sorry for picture quality here, especially in the bottom right area... Things and lights keep reflecting on the surface, so it's pretty hard to take a somewhat decent photo. ;-) *g*)

In the pictures (from left to right/ top to bottom, sort of *lol*): Michael Ball, Ben Mansfield, Philip Quast (yep, he's allowed to be in there twice <3), Reece Shearsmith, Simon Bowman, Norm Lewis, Killian Donnelly, Kasper Holmboe, Matt Rawle, Roger Allam, Veit Schäfermeier, Pia Douwes, Fredrik Wickerts, Thomas Borchert, Jörn Linnenbröker, Jerzy Jeszke, Aleks di Capri, Jens Janke, Felix Martin, Norbert Kohler and Olegg Vynnyk. Well, and myself, obviously, on some of them. ;D Some of the pictures are also autographed, but it doesn't show here too well...
 
This is what the frame looked like before btw, if you're interested. ;-) click

- Next week I'm gonna watch Sister Act again. *yay* Sadly the musical is leaving Hamburg on 26 August, so I had to take this as last oppurtunity... Already seen it once last year in July and enjoyed it so very much!! :D It's so much fun and many of the songs are really catchy. *g* Hope I'm as lucky with the cast as I was the last time. :-)

- Also, if everything goes according to plan (and my boss does actually remember that I want that day off... *rolleyes*) I'm going to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict, [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 and [livejournal.com profile] vesperdavid in Hamburg on Saturday the 25th. Really looking forward to that! :-)
luinalda: (Les Mis - Enjolras (Killian))
Awesome! Can't wait!! <3

EDIT: Mhh, YouTube seems to be deleting the videos right after I post the links and the embedded code on the other site doesn't seem to be working... :-(
You might have to use this link then: 'Les Miserables' movie trailer
It's totally worth it though!! And should I find another working embedding code I'll add it here again.

So, it's Hadley's birthday today. <3 He's 32 now, like me. *g*

Good excuse opportunity for me to post a couple of vids. :D I actually thought that I had already posted one of them here, but I looked and apparently I haven't. Hmmm, maybe it was on FB then.



This may well be one of my favourite things in the world. ♥♥ Utterly beautiful song and perfectly sung. <3 I have lost count of how many times I have watched/listened to it (I also have it on my iPod) and I will never get tired of it.


I only found this a couple of days ago. I knew this song from one of John Barrowman's albums and love it. :-)


Another great song. :-) Sadly no video.

I also discovered the other day that a kind person uploaded a few clips of Hadley in "The Fresh Beat Band" episodes. I was really laughing my ass off and still can't get over them. *gg* They are just beyond hilarious. :D *rofl* *lol*
"What's shaking?" *gg* )

I'm gonna go and (re-)watch the Phantom Of The Opera 25th Anniversary Concert now, to celebrate. <3
I guess I could also watch the movie "The Lost Tribe" again, only it's like, um... terrible? Awful? :p *lol* Phantom definitely is the better choice. ;-) *g* And maybe the student scenes from the Les Mis 25th Anniversary concert afterwards. :D

luinalda: (POTO25 - Phantom)
I took lots of screenshots of the Phantom Of The Opera 25th Anniversary Concert yesterday, because I wanted some Phantom icons. ;D So today I made some icons and thought I might as well share them here. Only Phantom, Phantom/Christine, Raoul, Raoul/Christine ones though because I'm still much in love with Hadley and Ramin, and they're nothing special really...
Please credit if you use any of them. Comments are ♥.

Let your soul take you where you long to be... )
luinalda: (Wicked - Galinda squee)
Look what I just found in my letterbox. \o/


♥♥♥ *does the happy dance*
Care to guess what I'll be doing later? :D *gg*
Ramin!!!!! <3<3 Hadley!!!! <3<3 *happy sigh*

[livejournal.com profile] maggi137: Nochmals vielen, vielen lieben Dank!! *bighugs*
luinalda: (Valjean (JOJ))
Matt Lucas tweeted this video today.
Awesome!! I love their little songs. :D

Also, "Confrontation" has always been one of my most favourite Les Mis songs. ♥



luinalda: (Valjean (JOJ))
What do I do when I don't really feel like sleeping at night? I randomly browse YouTube of course. :p *gg* And sometimes I find things like this. \o/
So. Much. Love!!! ♥♥

I couldn't care less about this Peter Jöback guy (sorry *g*), but I adore the other 4. <3

luinalda: (Ben/David - fangirl moment)
Finally the first videos of the Phantom 25th Anniversary Concert turned up on YouTube. \o/
And I really hope they'll stay for a while. There's no way I can wait until the end of November for the DVD (leave alone February, when it's gonna be released here in Germany... *headdesk*) without at least little snippets like this! ;-) *g*



@ [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict: Good to see it without that error message, isn't it? :p *lol*

There's also "Point Of No Return" from the same uploader, but sadly it's not complete... Ah well, still better than nothing, I guess. ;-) And I don't seem to be able to get to the embedded code either, so you'd have to follow the link from YouTube: here.

And this:


If you find anything else, especially with Hadley/"Raoul" too, please let me know! Cheers. :-)

I can't believe it's October already! O_O

I haven't been around LJ much lately. Mainly because the last two weeks I had my final exams at school. Eek! Can't believe the 2 year training is already over now. Most of the exams went okay, a couple of them even good IMO. But I also think I probably failed 3 of them and the Spanish oral/interpreting one yesterday was a complete disaster too... *sighs* I'm actually only allowed to fail one of the exams, so I better prepare myself mentally to maybe have to take some of them again... But maybe I shouldn't worry too much already and wait for the results first, right? ;-)

Today I spent some hours outside, which was lovely. Gorgeous summer weather in October is weird gorgeous!
I played around with my camera a bit and discovered this setting called "Sandstrahl" (sandblast) that I never noticed before. I quite like it. :-)
some pics )

I'm looking very much forward to watching the live streaming of the Phantom Anniversary Concert with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict tomorrow. *yeah* Maybe I'm going to finally rewatch the 2004 Phantom Of The Opera movie tonight to get in the mood. :D

And last but not least, a happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] maryoftheriver. I hope you had a nice day!
luinalda: (Sherlock - dear diary)
Yesterday it was time for the Kiel Lauf. It's a quite popular sports event here and it seems to be getting bigger every year. This year there were about 8,600 participants. 
This is also the first year that I took an active part in it. Go, me! *gg* Before I only ever was a spectator when my father did the half-marathon. ;-) And it actually went surprisingly well (considering that I virtually didn't do any training for it). I finished the 6km in 47 mins 25 sec. :-)

    
(taken before the start)                                               (about 1-2 km into the race)


In other news: I'm going to see a live streaming of the Phantom Of The Opera 25th Anniversary Concert with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict in a small cinema near Hamburg on 2 October. \o/ Yeah, baby! Really looking forward to that! <3
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] baka_yu for bringing up the idea and to [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict for finding the cinema. :D
It'll probably be the next best thing to actually being live at the Royal Albert Hall. ;-) And it'll definitely be the first time I'm driving 76km just to get to a cinema... *lol*


luinalda: (Krolock)
Yesterday my mum and I went to Thomas Borchert's "If I sing... - Meine größten Musicalerfolge" concert at the Altonaer Theater in Hamburg. And it was totally awesome!!! ♥
The music was wonderful and we also laughed so much. You just have to love his little stories. *gg* And he made us sing too, because "singing makes you happy". :D So much fun! *lol*
 I also really liked his guest star, Carin Filipcic. :-) I had heard her before on 1 or 2 recordings, but never actually knowingly paid her much attention... She has a great, very powerful voice. *wow* Thomas did a couple of duets with her and she also got to sing 2 or 3 solo songs. She kinda messed up "Totale Finsternis" and then did some improvising, which was hilarious. *lol* :D

This is the only picture I managed to take, unfortunately, and the quality is really rotten. :-(



So I stole these from Facebook. ;-)
click )

I also found this video on YouTube, which is kind of an official trailer for the concert tour with little song snippets. It brings back lovely memories. <3 His voice!! *bows*




Thank you for an amazing evening, Mr. Borchert, and please come back very soon!! ♥

- So, yesterday it was time for our visit to the Rocky Horror Show in Hamburg. And it was just So. Much. Fun!!! :D The audience participation was just awesome! During the rain scene I actually thought that they had set of the sprinkler system (or maybe they had, who knows *g*), because it felt even more wet than the rain outside. *lol* The toilet paper and confetti throwing was great too. *gg* And I think everybody was on their feet during "Time Warp". :-)

I had hoped to see Rob Fowler as Frank 'N' Furter, but sadly he wasn't playing (apparently he had just been on holiday) and we had his cover, Matthew McKenna, instead. But Matthew was really great (and quite cute *ahem*)! As a matter of fact, the whole cast was very good. :-)

I felt a bit sorry for Sky Du Mont, who was the narrator, though. There were a couple of idiots people who yelled things like "Boring!" and "Get lost!" everytime he got on stage to do his thing... Ok, it probably really isn't the most interesting part of the show, but the narrator is still part of the show and movie - so get over it! But I don't think Sky was bothered too much by it anyway and he also had one or two good repartees ("You only have to listen to it once, but I have to do this every day." *gg*). ;-)

The Deutsches Schauspielhaus is really beautiful, btw. :-)
some theatre pics )

- It was back to school today. Six weeks of holiday just isn't long enough, is it? :p I really had to force myself out of bed this morning. *sighs* But the first day wasn't actually that bad.

- I should finish season 2 of Warehouse 13 tonight (I only have episode 2x12 and the Christmas one left). *yeah* And then I can start catching up on season 3. :D I'm really very much in love with the show by now. <3

- It's my cat's 1st birthday in exactly one week. \o/ Just sayin'.
luinalda: (Valjean (JOJ))
I was more or less randomly browsing YouTube for some people earlier today and found these 2 videos. Alfie Boe and Matt Lucas singing "The Impossible Dream" and "He Ain't Heavy, He's my Brother".

LOL. So good!! :D


luinalda: (London - telephone box)
This is a kind of musical theatre special. :D

Basically just some pics of the London theatres I've been to so far. Which I realised weren't really that many yet... Well, I'll try to work on that the next times I'm in London. ;-)

Read more... )
luinalda: (Les Mis - Enjolras (Killian))
My father is going to present my mother with tickets for the new Rocky Horror Show tour (which premieres tonight in Cologne) for her birthday and invited me to come along. \o/ Yeah, baby! :D I bloody LOVE the movie so much. <3 But I have never seen the show live before, so I'm quite excited about it! I booked the tickets yesterday for 14 August in Hamburg. I'm really looking forward to it. :-) The theatre (Deutsches Schauspielhaus) looks very posh, too!



Also, thanks for the v-gift, [livejournal.com profile] caesaria! I'm looking forward to tomorrow. :D (And am getting a bit nervous already...)

- I just registered for the 6km run of the Kiel.Lauf on 11 September! Yeah, I don't know what came over me either. :p *lol* I actually wasn't out jogging at all since... well, June or July last year, I think. O_O Haha! Really need to get into it again soon, I guess. ;-) But this is about the distance I ran back then, so it should be doable... Btw, not counting that one teeny-tiny junior triathlon I did when I was young (in my teens? I don't really remember...), this will be the first official sports event I'm actively participating in! Quite exciting! :D

- I think I'm finally rid of my neck problems. Hooray! \o/ Or at least for now...

- I'm going to see "Crazy For You" again on Sunday. <3 *yay* Unfortunately it'll be the last time though. *sniffles* Apart from Sunday there are only 2 more dates for it this month (both of which I can't go to) and then it's run at our opera house closes. :-(

- I'm officially in love with Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Simon Amstell right now. <3 I had only seen a couple of random NMTB episodes before, on account of some of the guests, and always really enjoyed it, so I started watching the show properly last week. Amstell's time as host (series 19-22) that is. I know many people don't like him and/or prefer Mark Lamarr (who I don't know)... But I think Simon's great! Deal with it! :p
I definitely need to make some space for some of the awesome NMTB icons that [livejournal.com profile] miss_jaffacake made (yours are the best!). :D I think with icons of my favourite quotes alone I could use up at least half of my total icon space... *lol*

I've been to Stuttgart twice so far, both basically to see some musicals. :D *g* But it's a lovely city and I'd really like to go visit again someday. :-)

My visit in 2005 was actually a stopover on my way back home from Alicante, so several of my Stuttgart pics from then are lost too, sadly. :-( I'm more than grateful that at least all my Elisabeth and Mamma Mia stagedoor photos survived intact! \o/

this is Stuttgart )
