The Song of the Earth
"The Song of the Earth" is the culmination of a long dialogue with the music of Gustav Mahler initiated in 1974 by the director of The Hamburg Ballet. Considered by many to be the composer's most personal work and indeed his masterpiece.
The Ballet Revue "Bernstein Dances" is a homage to John Neumeier's personal friend Leonard Bernstein. "The Dance Musical Leonard Bernstein didn't have time to write? In any case – a title with two meanings: a suite of dances to Bernstein's music and Bernstein – himself – dances." John Neumeier
A Midsummer Night's Dream
"None of us can have seen all the ballet versions of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", but it is difficult to believe that any other might be as successful as John Neumeier's. He has created a reading of the text which makes sense of every aspect of the play. He has reproduced, in music and dance, the very spirit of Shakespeare's play. What an extraordinary play it is. What an extraordinary ballet it is." Josseline Le Bourhis
