With The Wave, the musical division of the Landestheater is already presenting its fourth world premiere - after several awards for previous new musicals. The Wave is based on the famous social experiment of teacher Ron Jones, which transformed an American high school into a kind of fascist movement within a few days in 1967. When things got out of control and the structures that had been rehearsed showed more and more totalitarian traits, the teacher wanted to stop the experiment - but the members of "The Wave" opposed him.
