Rocky Musical, ‘Rocky The Musical’ is to open in Germany next year. The Oscar-winning 1976 boxing movie has been turned into a stage show in a joint production between Sylvester Stallone — who portrayed the underdog pugilist — and World Heavyweight Champion boxing brothers Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko.
The musical will premiere in Hamburg, Germany, in November 2012 and the 65-year-old actor can’t wait to see the story, which he wrote, on stage.
Speaking at the launch of the show at the Operettenhaus theatre in Hamburg yesterday, he said: “To see this story coming to life on a musical stage makes me proud.”
As well as producing, Vladimir, 35, and Vitali, 40, will train the lead actor to make his boxing skills more believable to the audience.
Stallone will coach the individual who takes on the mantle of Rocky Balboa and will teach him how to move and act like the fictional fighter.
He added: “I imagine I will be able to help the future star of the show to learn the body language of Rocky and to develop a feeling for the character. Boxers are always tense, always moving around, and each one has his own characteristics.”
