Hey all,

It is finally time for Ballet!

The Ballet am Rhein’s latest offering b.29 is a true homage to the greats, featuring pieces choreographed by George Ballanchine, Martin Schläpfer and Jerome Robbins and set to music by Tchaikovsky, Chopin and Witold Lutoslawski.

The first of the three pieces for the evening is Mozartina. Choreographed towards the end of Ballanchine’s career it pays tribute to Ballanchine’s muses and reflects his incredible musicality and creativity.

The second, Konzert für Orchester, is a bold new work that showcases the strength and power of the company, and uses striking costume and staging to convey the emotional range of the piece.

The final piece for this evening The Concert, rounds out the evening with a more humourous and comic ballet by Robbins whose reputation lies both in his work with the American Ballet Theater and his choreography of Broadway classics like West Side Story.

Prepayment is necessary to book a place. Deadline is 28.09. Upon RSVP, you will receive payment details.

Looking forward to seeing you all then!
