Opening the mixed repertory evening FORSYTHE/GOECKE/SCHOLZ will be the company premiere of William Forsythe’s The Second Detail. The piece was commissioned by Reid Anderson in 1991 when he was Artistic Director of the National Ballet of Canada and is today one of Forsythe’s most successful “ballet ballets”, its virtuosity having made it popular with companies around the world. Now this cool and sexy ballet enters the Stuttgart Ballet repertory for the first time.
One of Uwe Scholz‘ most beautiful creations returns to the stage of the Opera House this season: His Seventh Symphony, created in 1991 for the Stuttgart Ballet. Set to Ludwig van Beethoven’s eponymous composition, the piece is considered one of Scholz’s undisputed masterpieces, a perfect translation of Beethoven’s spectacular music into dance. Seventh Symphony will be part of the mixed repertory evening FORSYTHE/GOECKE/SCHOLZ as of January 29, 2016.
On March 4, 2016 we will premiere a new mixed repertory evening in the Play House: KAMMERBALLETTE combines the company premiere of Hans van Manen’s Kammerballett, the revival of Glen Tetley's brilliant piece Arena as well as a new creation of company member Katarzyna Kozielska.
