All shows take place at the Kino Seehof and are presented with German subtitles (except for the ballets and concerts).

NUSSKNACKER UND MAUSEKÖNIG

NUSSKNACKER UND MAUSEKÖNIG

Sun 01.12.11:00NUSSKNACKER UND MAUSEKÖNIG Performing Arts - Ballett!oDSeehof 1

By Christian Spuck, recorded at the Opernhaus Zurich.

Because of Tchaikovsky’s imaginative music, The Nutcracker and the Mouseking is one of the most popular works of the ballet repertoire, instantly bringing to mind scenes of a splendidly decorated Christmas room, dancing snowflakes and the waltz of the flowers. The plot of The Nutcracker and the Mouseking is based on a novella by E.T.A. Hoffmann, one of the most famous writers of German Romanticism. While Hoffmann’s masterful fairytale virtuously jumps back and forth from a dream to reality, in its adaptation as a ballet libretto by Alexandre Dumas and Marius Petipa, it lost much of its dark romantic fantasy.

Christian Spuck attempts to distance himself from the Dumas/Petipas version in his choreography and puts the literary origin at the heart of his ballet, emphasizing the fantastical nature of the original rather than the delightful Christmas fairytale and bringing back the fairytale of the princess Pirlipat, who turns into a nut monster, as told by E.T.A. Hoffmann. In Rufus Didwiszus’ stage setting, the workshop of the godfather Drosselmeier turns into an old revue-theater, where the characters of the ballet come to life. Spucks’ choreography plays with the richness of characters in E.T.A. Hoffmann’s narrative cosmos, the absurdity and overwrought humor that inhabit them while at the same time looking down into the dark abyss of Romanticism.

For further information see the programme (Opernhaus Zurich).

42ND STREET

42ND STREET

Sun 12.01.11:0042ND STREET Performing Arts - Musical!EdSeehof 1

Musical by Harry Warren & Al Dubin.

42nd Street, the legendary Broadway musical theatre classic, is a ‘glorious’ (Express) and ‘utterly moreish extravaganza of glitz’ (Times). Telling the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway, this is the largest ever staging of the Tony® Award-winning musical and it was filmed live at the magnificent Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in the heart of London’s West End. Fresh off the bus from small-town America Peggy is just another face in the chorus line on Broadway’s newest show. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she’s always dreamed of… Directed by the show author, Mark Bramble, this ‘achingly beautiful revival of an American classic’ (Telegraph) stars national treasure Bonnie Langford as Dorothy Brock, Tom Lister as Julian Marsh, Clare Halse as Peggy Sawyer and Philip Bertioli as Billy Lawlor, performing with a dazzling tap-dancing and show-stopping ensemble cast. Featuring iconic songs "We’re In The Money", "Lullaby Of Broadway", "Shuffle Off To Buffalo", "Dames" and "I Only Have Eyes For You", this is pure musical magic on the big screen – entertainment doesn’t get bigger than this!

THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

Sun 29.03.10:00THE SLEEPING BEAUTY Performing Arts - Ballett!oDSeehof 1

Ballet in three acts by Rudolf Nureyev, music by Tschaikowski.

In his rendering of the dreamiest, most sumptuous of ballets, perhaps the ballet par excellence, Nureyev maintained the incredible purity of Petipa’s original choreography, just as he had learned it at the Kirov, but infused it with a fresh sense of theatrical drama and inner strength through remarkable variations and an articulated choreographic composition that reveals all of the characters’ psychological nuances. Indeed, it was to La Scala in 1966 that Nureyev entrusted the debut of “his” Sleeping Beauty, and now, twelve years after its last performance, his masterpiece returns to the stage with the magnificent sets created by Oscar winner Franca Squarciapino at La Scala in 1993, and Felix Korobov conducting the extraordinary score by Tchaikovsky.
