DRESDEN SEMPEROPER BALLETT


Apollo
In Apollon musagète (created in 1928 and renamed Apollo in 1957), George Balanchine has created a monument to Apollo. With its focus on simplicity and clarity, Apollon musagète is regarded as the earliest example of a neo-classicist ballet.
New Suite
New Suite is made up of a series of duets, which William Forsythe has rearranged or specially created for the Semperoper Ballett. With the exception of New Sleep - premiered in 1987 by the San Francisco Ballet - all underlying works were created in the nineties for Forsythe′s Frankfurt Ballett. Hndel is from a 1995 Forsythe choreography with the promising absurd title Invisible Film. Bach in turn uses material that was developed for Kammer/Kammer - a largely performative piece that premiered in 2000 in the Bockenheimer Depot. Berio is based on the first part of Workwithinwork (1998). Finally, Slingerland Pas de deux from the 1990 ballet of the same name plays with the contrast between harmony and tension, the relationship between the genders.
Vertigo Maze
To the transcendentally beautiful music of Johann Sebastian Bach′s Chaconne for Solo Violin and Four Voices, the Belgian choreographer and stage designer Stijn Celis poses questions about freedom amidst restrictions and seeks out a place of harmony.
