Panel discussion about »La Bayadère«

A. Ratmansky, J. Öhman and J. Kaplan talking


On the occasion of the premiere of »La Bayadère«, Staatsballett Berlin is inviting you to a panel discussion on 4 November 2018, 3.30 pm, at Staatsoper Unter den Linden.

Alexei Ratmansky is reconstructing Marius Petipa’s »La Bayadère« with the Staatsballett Berlin and is bringing it to the stage as a true ‘Grand Ballet’. The much sought-after choreographer has already reconstructed six works by Petipa, and as a connoisseur, he is able to explain in detail how the dance technique and the composition skills, the ingenious ideas of this master are fascinating to the present day. In close cooperation with the choreographer, stage and costume designer Jerome Kaplan designed the setting that bridges the gap between classic-romantic opulence and the viewing habits of today. Artistic Director Johannes Öhman, who together with Sasha Waltz commissioned the production, is not only interested in the “cosmos Petipa”, but also in asking which light  the taste and world view connected to the classical heritage needs to be viewed in. In an artists’ talk / panel – in English – all three of them discuss their point of views on »La Bayadère«, and how these evolved and changed over several months of the intense working process.

Admission will be through the Portikus of Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Doors open: 3.15 pm. Free entrance, seats are limited. There is no possibility to book in advance. Admission to the panel does not grant access to the premiere.
