Führung durch die Staatsoper
The second revival of the season, "The Seagull", on February 26, 2017, continues this season's focus on choreographic interpretations of Russian literature. John Neumeier's ballet, based on Anton Chekhov's work of the same title, was last performed in Hamburg in 2009 and examines the balance between life and art. "Chekhov, like Shakespeare, is an author who creates characters so complete, so true that they live in the imagination outside and independent of the text. It is the emotional life behind Chekov's words that I transform into dance. For me, the central theme and conflict of The Seagull is the relationship between love and art - art and love." John Neumeier
