Dear Members

Choreographer John Neumeier created his version of Sommernachtstraum in Protected content the piece has been a steady part of the Bayerisches Staatsballett's repertory. It was first performed in Protected content . After John Neumeier revised the choreography, the new version premiered in Protected content . Proof lies in its unique and thoughtful, virtuosic approach to developing drama. After all, the complex mixture of musical layers would be worth a separate panel discussion. Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy's atmospheric musical score for Sommernachtstraum reflects the world of the mortals, while Györgi Ligeti's siren-esque organ pieces bring to mind the fairy kingdom depicted in Shakespeare's play. The craftsmen's dance is underlined by dominant opera paraphrases for the barrel organ which satirize even the noblest melodies.
