Ballet Review: Dusseldorf Ballet

Hosted by the German embassy, celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations with Israel, The Dusseldorf Ballet performed A German Requiem, by Martin Schlapfer.

The work, based on Johannes Brahms’ creation, enjoyed a large cast of about 40 well-trained dancers, conveying Schlapfer’s sensitivities.

The tightly constructed requiem supplied a great structural guideline which allowed the dance to smoothly move between various inner landscapes, based on the 19th century composer’s intentions and the contemporary choreographer’s personal interpretations.
