The day of the premiere. Toi toi toi everybody for tonight!
We hope, you all enjoyed “One month with Stravinsky” and want to thank you for accompanying us through this last month! If you want to see Stravinsky TODAY on our stage, check our schedule for all performance dates!
And this is how “One month with Stravinsky” ends: the premiere!
Tonight is the general rehearsal for Stravinsky TODAY. Our excitement is growing. Despite all superstition we really hope that tonight everything will go well! In the meantime we let you take a look at one of the last stage rehearsals for Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Firebird …

„The final Countdown“! We’re now in the week of the premiere. This morning Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui has been rehearsing Firebird on the stage with the dancers. We don’t want to reveal too much, but feel free to take a look at the new photos …
