The compound programme is made up of ballet works by three distinguished contemporary European choreographers: first, Uwe Scholz (an outstanding German creator with a refined style, dubbed the “European Balanchine”, who served in Leipzig until his untimely death and whose choreographies have been part of the repertoire of all first-class ballet companies owing to their sophisticated, innovative dance technique, typical and matchless in his abstractly conceived works)

1st Symphony in D major
Choreography & Stage direction: Petr Zuska
Music: Gustav Mahler

A noteworthy feature of the choreography is the constant flowing of the moving dancers, an endless current of streaming bodies, drifted by the music in the same direction. Zuska has imbued his opus with an infinitely variable tone and permeated it with a dramatic tension.

Petr Zuska (a renowned Czech choreographer and Artistic Director of the Czech National Ballet). Zuska’s choreography, created for EXPO 2010 in Shanghai, is a pure visual rendition of Gustav Mahler’s famous Symphony No. 1 in D major, which is ingenuously built using neo-classical movement phraseology.
