Dornröschen: Festspielhaus Baden‐Baden

About the Event

Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Baden‐Baden's breathtaking Festspielhaus for the ultimate performance set to awake your understanding of dance.

Tchaikovsky's 'Sleeping Beauty' in the original choreography by Petipa is considered the most important classical ballet ever. But what does that mean: original choreography? Today, there are only approximations, and so Neumeier made the temporal distance between then and now a subject of his own. So when Sleeping Beauty is kissed awake again after 100 years of sleep, it is not just two people who meet, but two epochs. This rendezvous allowed the choreographer to use Petipa's classical dance repertoire and still set the story in the present: a distant present, however, as so often with Neumeier, presented in fairy‐tale imagery by Jürgen Rose.
