With ukulele, harmonica and guitar, Bernd Stempel receives Das Hexenlied on his evening to trace a narrative and song tradition that makes many think more of red roses or barren German lessons: the ballad. Bernd Stempel, who has been in the DT ensemble since 1989 and will be celebrating his 40th stage anniversary in 2018, shows that this ballad has lost nothing of its topicality and has not only been created for the theatre but also for the bar. Between stage and counter he chats, makes music, sings and plays his way through moving anecdotes, gripping odes, surprising love poems and incredible legends. Das Hexenlied – an homage to the art of storytelling and an invitation to make your own rhyme out of it.
