„musiktheater stands up!“
„krea[K]tiv – musiktheater stands up, represented by Burkhard Fritz and Magdalena Weingut is Bühnenheld (stage hero) 2020. The two of them and their team have worked proactively by founding krea[K]tiv – musiktheater stands up, by drawing attention to the legal and general social and political situation of self-employed workers in opera. They have pointed out the social evils that became evident during Corona times and have encouraged them to stand up for more fairness in the daily life of the opera business. Not only have they supported the individual artists but also established connections to agencies, theater management and unions, as well as to international unions.
Thank you – you have earned the title “Bühnenheld” (stage hero) because you kept a cool head in these difficult times!“
