Over the years, sacred music has inspired a number of John Neumeier's choreographic works. In 1981 he choreographed the "Saint Matthew Passion". Not only was this ballet a turning point in his creative work, but it became a kind of "signature" piece for his company and was shown throughout the world in more than 25 cities from New York to Tokyo. Six years after "Saint Matthew Passion" Neumeier created (for the Paris Opera) the "Magnificat", premiered at the Festival of Avignon, and 1991 Mozart's "Requiem" for the Salzburg Festival.
