Just 7 more days to go until the world premiere!

James Tuggle, Music Director and Conductor of the Stuttgart Ballett, has begun rehearsals for Krabat with the orchestra. For the orchestra of the State Theatre Stuttgart, there are several new pieces of music to learn, among others Pēteris Vasks' Message and Krzysztof Penderecki's Polymorphia. At first the orchestra rehearses alone; then they will join the dancers, which is always very exciting.

Our Krabat-Diary photographer Roman Novitzky recently snuck into the orchestra rehearsal so that we can see what they are up to! We all can’t wait for the next rehearsals on stage with the musicians.

Every mill must have lots of sacks! For Krabat, over 1000 sacks were sewed in the scenic workshops of the State Theatre Stuttgart. Then they were “aged” in the scenic paint workshops so that they don’t look too new.

In our photo gallery, you can see how the sacks were made.

Just 21 more days to go until the world premiere!

The costumes for Krabat – based on the designs by Katharina Schlipf – are being completed and now it is time for costume fittings. The dancers have many appointments with the staff of the wardrobe department – headed by Nicole Krahl and Diana Eckmann - where every last inch is checked to ensure a proper fit. The costume department has the measurements for every dancer right down to the circumference of their pinky fingers.

With only very few exceptions, all costumes for the Stuttgart Ballet, Stuttgart Opera and the Schauspiel Stuttgart are made in house, including the costumes for Krabat of course!

Our photographer Roman Novitzy accompanied Angelina Zuccarini to her fitting.

Our colleagues in the scenic paint workshop are busy putting the finishing touches on one of the backdrops for Krabat, based on the sketches by set and costume designer Katharina Schlipf. The scenic paint workshop of the State Theatre Stuttgart is the largest of its kind in all of Europe. Very impressive, as is what the painters and calligraphers are doing at the moment! For a sneak peek, visit the photo gallery.

James Tuggle is the Stuttgart Ballet’s Director of Music and leading conductor. He has also been musical advisor for the world premiere of Krabat and made several musical suggestions to Choreographer Demis Volpi. After hours and hours of searching for and listening to music which best fit the libretto, Volpi chose three contemporary composers: Pēteris Vasks, Philip Glass und Krzysztof Penderecki.

James Tuggle will conduct the Orchestra of the State Theater for the world premiere of Krabat.
