[Grand European choreographers ]

For about 12 years, until he died in 1973, John Cranko inspired the Stuttgart Ballet to achieve a staggering level of excellence. Artists made their breakthrough here and went on to become some of the greatest creators of our times. This first evening dedicated to “Grand European Choreographers” puts the spotlight on three of them: William Forsythe, Jirí Kylián and Uwe Scholz. Although each has developed his own decidedly contemporary language, all three consider Ballet’s classical vocabulary as their source of expression. Quintett by Forsythe, 27’52’’ by Kylián and Jeunehomme by Scholz are three major works by these choreographers. The first two are entering the repertoire for the first time and the third is a renewal. Performing these works to open the season of the Ballet of the Opéra national du Rhin is a major statement: the height of ambition from the very outset.
