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.
Orphée et Eurydice
Eurydice is dead, a fact the man and artist Orpheus cannot accept. He demands her return. Indeed, the beauty of art and its power to transcend and destroy borders manages to render the weapons of Death and its guards ineffective – apparently, this is necessary. Eurydice is allowed to return to the living.
The Glass Menagerie
75 years after the triumph of "The Glass Menagerie" on Broadway, John Neumeier immerses himself into the dream world of Tennessee's drama and transforms it – to the music of Charles Ives, Philip Glass and Ned Rorem – into a full-length ballet.
Open House Day for Venice
The Hamburg Ballett collects donations for the Teatro La Fenice. The hundred year flood in November 2019 severely damaged the city of Venice. The Teatro La Fenice, in which the Hamburg Ballet will be guesting with John Neumeier's ballet "Duse" in February 2020, also needs financial support for the restoration. On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Ballet Center Hamburg opens its doors on January 25, 2020 and collects donations.
In February the Hamburg Ballet goes on an extensive tour of Italy and Asia, with stops in Venice, Singapore and Macau. The company will perform John Neumeier's "Duse" at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice. The title role will be danced by ballet star Alessandra Ferri, for whom John Neumeier created the role of Eleonora Duse. After 17 years the Hamburg Ballet makes its return visit to the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay in Singapore with John Neumeier's "The Lady of the Camellias". The audience in Macao can look forward to John Neumeier's signature ballet, "Nijinsky".
