Over ten successful seasons under Ballet Director Aaron S. Watkin, Semperoper Ballett has evolved into one of the world’s most acclaimed companies, a fact attested by its many tours and guest appearances. In the 2016/17 season Semperoper Ballett will once again reaffirm its great reputation. Alongside a highly diverse repertoire, audiences will be captivated by the magical, dreamlike imagery of the new pieces »Don Quixote« and the three-part work »Forgotten Land«.
Jiří Kylián created »Vergessenes Land« as an homage to lost countries, lost loves and lost times. The work is framed by two other trailblazing choreographies of modern dance: George Balanchine’s »Symphony in C« and William Forsythe’s »Quintett«. This latter piece from 1993 was created by Forsythe as a final love letter to his dying wife. Yet rather than a lamentation, »Quintett« is a celebration of life. The premiere is on 20th of May 2017.
Additional performances in the 2016/17 season: 23rd, 27th of May & 2nd, 6th, 7th of June 2017.
