Renowned choreographer Justin Peck took a break from his rehearsals with the Joffrey Ballet to explain what he listens for when selecting music to choreograph.
A new production of Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice, in partnership with the Joffrey Ballet, and the second installment of Wagner’s Ring, will highlight the 2017-2018 season at Lyric Opera of Chicago.
John Neumeier, director and chief choreographer of the Hamburg Ballet, directs, choreographs, and designs the production.
Dancer Anastacia Holden reflected that “as an artist, we’re always looking for new challenges, because they make us grow. It’s always great to do a new work and see a fresh take on this traditional holiday story.”
“The last time we did this production, you could hear that people were really upset by it. And yet, there is absolutely beautiful choreography — it’s absolutely stunning.”
Choreographer John Neumeier said that in his reinterpretation of Sylvia, he “tried to invent a movement vocabulary that would suit each of the characters.”
