According to John Neumeier, "Giselle" is the most significant and beautiful ballet of the Romantic period. John Neumeier's new, modern version of "Giselle" was premiered in 2000 and gives this jewel of the classical romantic dance form a contemporary frame. |  More...


Peer Gynt

John Neumeier's revised version of his original ballet "Peer Gynt", which premiered in 1989 and is set to a commissioned score composed by Alfred Schnittke, was presented in June 2015 and returns to the stage of the Hamburg State Opera on May. "Peer's fate is the fate of Everyman. He is the antihero, the human being after the fall of mankind, and we are just as imperfect as he is. It interests me how our lives mirror his, this 'Peer Everyman Gynt' – a parable of the human condition", John Neumeier says. |  More...
