MISS SAIGON cast presentation
premiere at 03. December 2021
MISS SAIGON, Cameron Mackintosh’s powerful and poignant international hit musical will have its first ever run in Vienna from November 2021 onwards. Christian Struppeck, the VBW’s Artistic Director of Musicals, brings this famous musical by Alain Boublil & Claude-Michel Schönberg (LES MISÉRABLES) to Austria in a spectacular new production that marks the grand re-opening of the Raimund Theater. At a press conference today he presented the production and its soloists to the media.
A top-notch cast for Vienna
For the new Raimund Theater’s first major long run production the VBW have engaged a first-class cast: newcomers Vanessa Heinz and audience favourite Oedo Kuipers (MOZART!) take on the roles of Kim and Chris. Christian Rey Marbella gives his Vienna debut at the Raimund Theater as the Engineer after playing the role in the production’s tour of the UK and Ireland. John is played by musical theatre star Gino Emnes (JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR / Vienna, THE GRAND VBW MUSICAL TV GALA) and Thuy by the opera singer and musical theatre performer James Park (PETER GRIMES). Abla Alaoui (DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES / Vienna) returns to Vienna and the VBW for MISS SAIGON as Ellen, while Annemarie Lauretta (Disney’s ALADDIN) gives her VBW debut as Gigi.
