An Evening of Ballets by John Neumeier

Old Friends

Convincingly John Neumeier blends music by stylistically diverse composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Frédéric Chopin, Federico Mompou and Simon & Garfunkel. As usual, he puts a lot effort into creating a common point of reference: "As in a play by Anton Chekhov, simple human experience – the present tense situations of the ballets – encapsulates past memories and future premonitions. Simon & Garfunkel's 'Dangling Conversation' takes on choreographic form, as the dancers move among ever changing relationships," says John Neumeier.

Music: Johann Sebastian Bach, Frédéric Chopin, Federico Mompou, Simon & Garfunkel
