With "Beethoven Project II" at the Whitsun Festival in Baden-Baden
For the Whitsun Festival in May 2021, the Hamburg Ballet and the SWR Symphony Orchestra are planning to perform John Neumeier's ballet "Beethoven Project II" in the Baden-Baden Festival Hall. The choreography is based on a violin sonata, passages from the oratorio "Christ on the Mount of Olives" and Ludwig van Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. The Hamburg Ballet has been a guest in Baden-Baden every year for more than 20 years. At the opening of the 2020/2021 season, the company could also be seen with "Ghost Light" on the stage of the Festspielhaus. The cooperation with the Festspielhaus will be continued in May 2021. The world premiere of John Neumeier's ballet "Beethoven Project II" is currently scheduled for April in the Hamburg State Opera.
"Ghost Light" – Video-on-demand
During our guest performance at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden in October 2020, we were not only able to perform John Neumeier's "Ghost Light", we even recorded it! Under the film direction of Myriam Hoyer, a film version of the ballet in Corona times was created, which was broadcast for the first time on January 24 on ARTE channel. The ballet is available online as video-on-demand until April 23, 2021.
"Beethoven Project II" – New Trailer
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are unfortunately not yet allowed to dance John Neumeier's new ballet "Beethoven Project II" in front of a live audience. To shorten the waiting time, we are releasing our new trailer with German voiceover. The trailer shows excerpts from the ballet that were filmed during the final rehearsal on December 4, 2020.
