Sun 06. Dec. 2020, 6.00 pm | Main Stage Premiere
Fascinated by the examination of Ludwig van Beethoven's music in his "Beethoven Project", which premiered in 2018, John Neumeier continues his preoccupation with various musical forms by this composer and combines them like a kaleidoscope to create a choreographic image of Beethoven's oeuvre. "Beethoven Project II" replaces the announced world premiere of the production "Beethoven 9", which cannot be realized with live music under the currently valid hygiene protection regulations.
John Neumeier's music selection combines piano and chamber music works by Ludwig van Beethoven from the context of the Heiligenstadt Testament with an excerpt from "Christ on the Mount of Olives" and the complete Seventh Symphony.
