Rulantica - The Musical' takes you to a mysterious island, where good fights against evil and legends become true. MackMedia produced this musical, which is routed deeply in the story world of Rulantica, together with Europa-Park.
The musical has been performed live at Europa-Park from 2018-2019.
The year is 1557. The royal ship Tre Kronor is on a secret mission. Its destination: the legendary island of Rulantica, where the source of life is said to be found. Like all the sailors aboard, ship’s boy Fin hopes this unique mission will bring him honor and fame. This only makes his disappointment more bitter when he has to stay on board while the captain and other sailors head to the island to find the source and to fill their water.
Fin secretly goes to the island to beat the captain in his quest and prove to everyone that he is more than a simple ship's boy. As he travels on his journey he falls in love with the mermaid Kailani, which eventually leads him to the source of life. Almost at the end of his quest he learns that the plundering of spring water would mean the end of the island.
Will he abandon his grand goal in order to protect Rulantica and its mysterious inhabitants from the captain's unbridled greed? Torn between the prospect of fame and his growing affection for Rulantica, Fin sparks a battle for love and justice.
Wonderful melodies, played by a 60-piece symphony orchestra from Berlin as well as top soloists from the world of musicals, will take the audience on a journey through time that both fascinates and transports them to another world. The expressive music of the Freiburg composer Hendrik Schwarzer once again provides an emotional delight.
"The orchestra was recorded separately. That is, the strings were recorded first, then the woodwinds, then the brass, then the solo vocals and then the choir singing. The individual recordings have allowed us to create better harmonisation." Hendrik Schwarzer
"The creation of the musical is a dynamic process in which many experts from different fields interact. Every new piece is a great mountain to overcome. At times, it can be scary, because so many things have to be considered." Ullrich Grawunder
