Dear Stuttgarters,

I am here in Naples since last Wednesday, under the beautiful Italian sun and enjoying the great food as well. But – of course, I have come here to work :)

I am here at the wonderful Teatro di San Carlo where we have been rehearsing for the world premiere of Gianluca Schiavoni’s Alice in Wonderland. I danced the premiere last night and I am also looking forward to my second show tomorrow evening!

I had a great time here! The other dancers were so welcoming and warm that it felt like being with a family :) It really was like an “adventure in wonderland”.

But I am also looking forward to see you all again soon!

Many kisses from Italy,

WEIMAR TOUR // April 13 and 14, 2017

We send you hugs and greetings from the lovely town of Weimar! We arrived here yesterday and our former colleagues (from Hasko Weber’s time as Intendant at the Schauspiel Stuttgart) and familiar faces from our last visit here welcomed us in the afternoon. In the evening we had our first stage call with the Staatskapelle Weimar – you can take a look at the photos below …

And tonight it’s toi toi toi for the first performance of John Cranko’s Romeo and Juliet at the German National Theatre Weimar! We hope the audience here will enjoy it and they will be moved by the tragical story of Romeo and Juliet (tonight with Alicia Amatriain and Jason Reilly, tomorrow with Elisa Badenes and David Moore) … To all of you who stayed at home: We wish you nice Easter Holidays :) See you soon!

Pure Seduction! // BOLERO

Not only Friedemann Vogel is rehearsing Maurice Béjart’s Bolero. Our Principal Dancer Alicia Amatriain will also dance this “seductive” role … on February 23, 27 and 28, 2017 (subject to change …). So you will have to wait a little longer for her performance, but here’s already a preview:

Pure Seduction! // DARK GLOW

Only one more week until the premiere! By now we have stage rehearsals almost every day, today for the first time with the orchestra. After the stage rehearsals follow the corrections in the studio. There are still some things to do, but we’re in a good mood, as you can see :)
