In conversation with Daniel Kaiser, Herbert Herrmann also remembers his involvement in the Hamburger Kammerspiele, where he was allowed to share the stage in 1971 with the artistic director and later Hamburg honorary citizen Ida Ehrlich. For Ida Ehre they liked to play “for honor instead of a fee”, says the actor and also raves a bit about the canteen in the Kammerspiele, which must have been legendary. But Nora von Collande also has a special relationship with Hamburg. Her mother was from Hamburg and has inherited a certain North German “tongue” from her.
