Elbphilharmonie, Grand Hall
7. Philharmonisches Konzert
"This additional, 51st season in Hamburg was a surprise – also for me! Although I was convinced that 2022/23 would be my last season as ballet director, fate had other plans. My successor, Demis Volpi, cannot become director of the company until the summer of 2024. Naturally, I could not abandon the ensemble that I had developed for 50 years. I have decided, therefore, to regard this unplanned season as an epilogue to my directorship in Hamburg."
Spring at the Hamburg Ballet
The spring repertory is varied: John Neumeier's "St. Matthew Passion" returns to the stage of the State Opera at Easter and can be seen in June at the place of its creation, St. Michaelis Church. In April, John Neumeier's literary adaptation "Liliom" is on the program - a bittersweet love story between the carousel crier Liliom and the waitress Julie. Film composer legend Michel Legrand composed the music for "Liliom" for orchestra and the NDR Big Band. The ballet "Ghost Light" is a melancholy piece for the entire ensemble, with solo piano music by Franz Schubert, played live in April by star pianist David Fray. In May, the ballet revue "Bernstein Dances" brings spring fever with Leonard Bernstein's songs from "West Side Story" and "On the Town", a.o., and costumes by Giorgio Armani.
National Youth Ballet
The Wild Fantasies of Wolfgang Amadé
4 stages - 8 dancers - 20 musicians - 3 singers. Together with the Mozartfest Ensemble, the National Youth Ballet transforms the Zinnwerke Wilhelmsburg works into an opulent ballroom, dances through the Schönbrunn Palace, throws voyeuristic glances into Mozart's innermost being and dissects his works.
Pictures of an era
We have waited a long time for it, finally it is here! To celebrate John Neumeier's anniversary, Henschel Verlag has published the illustrated book "50 Years of Hamburg Ballet John Neumeier". With the help of hundreds of photographs, some of which have never been published before, the illustrated book looks back on half a century of relentless, artistic vision-driven, unique work by the dancer, ballet director and exceptional choreographer John Neumeier. This illustrated biography pays tribute to John Neumeier, his creativity and his unforgettable, magnificent ballets.
