Vier letzte Lieder / Four last Songs

George Balanchine / Hans van Manen / David Dawson

Ballet evening in three parts


Alongside George Balanchine’s formalistic yet dazzling »Stravinsky Violin Concerto« (1972), »Kleines Requiem« is the first work by Dutch choreographer Hans van Manen to be performed at the Semperoper. This new three-part ballet evening by Semperoper Ballett concludes with the world premiere of David Dawson’s interpretation of »Four Last Songs« by Richard Strauss.
