Impressing the Czar by Dresden Semperoper Ballett
15 March - 16 March
Don’t miss Impressing the Czar by Dresden Semperoper Ballett this March! Golden cherries, ostentatious dresses and virtuosic bodies in movement — the Czar would have been impressed. But he has long since been swept away, just as living legend William Forsythe tends to sweep away conventional dance for something more radical and peppered with humour. Premiered in 1988, this full-length, award-winning ballet includes the lauded ‘In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated’ which electrified the ballet world.
Founded at the beginning of the 19th century, Dresden Semperoper Ballett is a contemporary ballet company that seeks to remove the borders that traditionally exist between classical and contemporary dance styles.
