“Scènes de ballet” (World premiere) by Marco Goecke and “Firebird” (German premiere) by Goyo Montero

Music by Igor Stravinsky

The Staatstheater Nürnberg Ballett is once again devoting itself to the iconic music of avant-garde composer Igor Stravinsky. After “Thin Skin” (2019) and “Woke up Blind” (2021), Marco Goecke – with his distinctive and clearly identifiable handwriting – is deepening this work with a new creation: He is putting together the abstract dance suite “Scènes de ballet” from 1944. This makes Goecke the first top-tier German dance artist to tackle this seldom performed masterpiece, after the legendary Uwe Scholz. Goyo Montero’s “Firebird” – yet another monolith in his extensive oeuvre – was created with Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo in May 2023 as an extraordinarily acute interpretation of this major piece of ballet history from 1909. Montero’s version is a tale of love, betrayal and revenge. For his company in Nuremberg he adds further depth as a modern, critical fable of environmental disaster and the extermination of an entire people. General Music Director Roland Böer will direct for the Staatstheater Nürnberg Ballett for the first time and guide the Staatsphilharmonie through the two highly varied scores.
