1. Choreographer Robert Moses created his signature work Doscongio in 1998. A solo set to two movements of Chopin’s Sonata for cello and piano (op. 65), Doscongio is both fiercely focused and relaxed. About the schism in one man’s view of himself, the first movement is his moment of public bravura and the second his private realization of the fallacy of that image. Performed by Ailey II.

  3. Passion
    Oper by Pascal Dusapin
    Libretto by Pascal Dusapin / Rita de Letteriis
    Choreography by Sasha Waltz

    Following on from "Dido & Aeneas" (2005), "Medea" and "Roméo et Juliette" (2007) Sasha Waltz is with »Passion" again developing a choreographic opera. Like »Medea« a contemporary composition by Frenchman Pascal Dusapin serves as the fundament. The nucleus of Sasha Waltz’s choreography is the solo singers Barbara Hannigan and Georg Nigl, complemented figuratively by a small group of dancers.

    Pascal Dusapin's "Passion" is a musical engagement with the Orpheus myth. Claudio Monteverdi's operatic setting is for Dusapin at centre. For the most part he relates the myth through Eurydice's eyes.

    Dramaturgically the myth describes the treatment. The staging and lighting indicate the boundaries between worlds. In course of the performance the players on stage, pass through various membranes separating the world of the living »Reality« from the hidden world, the »Underworld«.

    The title role is sung by the magnificent Barbara Hannigan, her partner being her peer Georg Nigl. The Vocalconsort Berlin constitutes the chorus, while Ensemble Modern under direction of Franck Ollu with whom Compagnie Sasha Waltz & Guests realised Wolfgang Rihm's »Jagden und Formen« provides the music. The libretto is in Italian.
