Kicking off with a super-cool track by Patric’s erstwhile band Will Frosta, this thirtieth edition of the Second-Hand Book Factory features discussion of the perfect man, the dangers of writing a book about people who can kill you and a defining moment in modern German history. Both Charles Adrian and his guest Patric Schott are members of the Berlin-based ensemble Nico and the Navigators whose production of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solonelle was about to play at the Grand Théâtre, Luxembourg when this episode was recorded.
Nico, who is mentioned a few times during the course of the episode, is Nicola Hümpel, director of the Berlin-based theatre ensemble Nico and the Navigators. The shows mentioned are Rossini’s Petite Messe Solonelle, Shakespeare’s Sonnets and Anaesthesia. The Theresa mentioned is the Austrian soprano Theresa Dlouhy.
Other present and past ensemble members of Nico and the Navigators featured on the podcast include Ted Schmitz (Page One 30), Marcel Schwald (Page One 50), Filippo Andreatta (Page One 51) and Soojin Anjou (Page One 99).
