This ballet-evening is composed of works of three of the most significant choreographers of our time. Nacho Duato’s creation ARCANGELO is a choreography which had its world premiere in 2000 and which is one of the master pieces of the Spanish choreographer. William Forsythe’s HERMAN SCHMERMAN is from 1992 and is nowadays in the contemporary repertory of many classical companies. Marco Goecke, whose choreographies are shown all over Germany, developed a world premiere for Staatsballett Berlin for the first time: and the sky on that cloudy old day. 45 minutes before each performance (except premieres), there is an introduction in the opera house. It is prepared and moderated by students of the institute of dance studies (Institut für Tanzwissenschaft) of Freie Universität Berlin.
