"Tom Stoppard has written one of the great political plays in the English language. . . . It has a moving, throat-catching intensity. . . . This play shows him at his combative and tolerant best." -- John Peter

"Stoppard's exciting new play of immutable passions and mutable politics, Rock 'N' Roll . . . is so flush with feeling that it never seems to stop trembling. . . . Stoppard locates the very rhythm of life. . . . ÝHis¨ most emotionally generous play." -- Ben Brantley

"Astonishing . . . There is an energy, rawness, and passion here one doesn't associate with the elegant and witty Stoppard, passages of unbuttoned emotion that go straight to the heart. . . . This new piece smells, well, of sex and drugs and Rock 'N' Roll." -- Charles Spencer --This text refers to an alternate Taschenbuch edition.


Spans the history of Czechoslovakia between the Prague Spring and the Velvet Revolution - but from the double perspective of Prague, where a rock 'n' roll band came to symbolise resistance to the regime, and the British left, represented by a Communist philosopher at Cambridge.

Format: Taschenbuch
Stoppard''s play Rock 'n' Roll deals with Czechoslovakia and Cambridge in the time from 1968 to 1990. Stoppard presents a rather more than less intellectual crowd of Czechoslovakians who are watched over three generations. Most of the Czechoslovakians first study in Cambridge and later some of them live and work there. These people are mostly concerned with what has become of communism, how it should be or what to do for imprisoned comrades. They have intense discussions, that range from the intellectual, such as a discussion of Sappho's Fragment 130 (LP) to the absurd or humourous. - Rock music is present throughout the play and the rock group 'Plastic People' comes to stand for the seemingly only viable form of dissidence after the fall of Dubcek. I did not mind that, but I am only slightly interested in Rock at all so there might be some aspects of the play which escaped me.
All in all I found Rock 'n' Roll a play that is hard to read, especially when the absurd with its lack of open meaning stops one in one's tracks suddenly, which may be the intention of the author. On the other hand the play is worth reading because not only is it researched well, but Stoppard is able to flesh out his characters and enables the reader to identify with the figures, if sHe wishes to.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Red flags and ivory towers 29. September 2015
Von Peter J. Orvetti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is perhaps Stoppard's most personal work. It's the story of a Czech intellectual named Jan, a student at Cambridge, and his mentor and friend Max, a communist professor. Jan returns to Prague, gets caught up in the 1968 Soviet invasion, and rather reluctantly becomes a dissident. Meanwhile back in England, Max keeps the faith of communism from the detached comfort of his bourgeois life, unable to admit to himself that his intellectual creed has great failings. Stoppard uses the importance of rock music to the Czech dissidents as a touchpoint throughout the play.

At times, Stoppard's efforts to explain some of the details of the Czech dissident movement to readers (or theatergoers) leads to lengthy passages that come off like lectures, and the debates between Jan and Max sometimes sound like we're looking in on a seminar or a doctoral candidate meeting. But these are minor flaws in this compelling work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Less Intellect, More Drama Needed 30. Januar 2008
Von John F. Rooney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
On January 11, 2008, I saw Tom Stoppard's Rock `n' Roll on Broadway with Brian Cox and Sinead Cusack in starring roles. Stoppard was born in Czechoslovakia and left with his family at an early age to escape from the Hitler terror. The play is about the Communist rule in his native country and the power of rock and roll to help breach cracks in the totalitarian regime. The music of the young was probably more influential and revolutionary than the endless petitions by the dissidents.
As usual with a Stoppard play, it is talky, clever, more focused on the political and philosophical than the truly dramatic. There's no question that Stoppard is bright and witty, but unfortunately his plays can be murky at times. The scenes in the play are separated by segments of rock and roll tracks by the Rolling Stones, the Plastic People, Pink Floyd, John Lennon, and others.
The women in this play and his "Coast of Utopia" are more vibrant, more dramatically potent, more believable, and draw more of an emotional response from the audience than his male characters who blather on and on, and who are more political, more theoretical, and ineffective. One scene near the end of Act One between Max and his wife Eleanor in which she confronts him with the cancer killing her is an emotionally draining one for the audience and the dramatic highpoint of the play. Stoppard's women get to you in your gut. His men at times seem to be drowning in gibberish.
There are few playwrights as daring, innovative, and intellectual as Stoppard, but there are other playwrights who are more dramatically and emotionally disturbing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fine Play by Stoppard 6. Januar 2009
Von Peter F. Ash - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this play because I was going to see the Huntington Theater production in Boston and as my hearing deteriorates I like to read plays before seeing them. This is really a fine play and although it deals with big ideas it is a lot more passionate and less cerebral than I expected of Stoppard. I'm not much of a play-goer, but for what it's worth it was one of the best plays I have seen in recent years. I found it well worth my time and money to read the book, and it was interesting to see some differences between the Broadway version (documented in the book) and the Boston version in the last scene. Both scenes work well, but I think the Boston version is slightly tighter.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Rock 'n Roll, the play 20. Oktober 2009
Von Duane M. Timm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased the book, "Rock 'n Roll" because I was going to see a performance of the play. I knew that with many characters in the play, plus transferring the action between Prague and Cambridge would be confusing. I was already acquainted with the characters and scenes so I was comfortable at the performance. Stoppard is difficult. However, after the performance in discussion with friends, we found the play to be enlightening. I owe most of my participation to having read the book. I do not think I would have read the book without plans to see the play.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent play 5. April 2008
Von Herbert Winter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a sophisticated play about the tribulations of Czechoslovakia as seen from England. The author himself was Czech living in England; his main character returns to his home country (the author himself did not). But the play is also very much about human relations, not just politics. It is a play worth seeing as well as reading.
