Gala for golden anniversary

50 Jahre Hans van Manen

06. November 2021

Empfohlen ab 10 Jahren

Hans van Manen created his first ballet outside the Netherlands 50 years ago for what is now the Ballett am Rhein. The piece was called ‘Keep Going’ – which in retrospect is a fitting motto for his busy and successful artistic career. Over the last 50 years, 22 of his total of 150 choreographic works have been seen on the stages of Opernhaus Düsseldorf and Theater Duisburg. The Deutsche Oper am Rhein would like to recognise this extraordinary relationship by awarding him honorary membership of the company. In this gala we would like to thank him and pay a fitting tribute to the maestro. The Ballett am Rhein will take a bow with a retrospective of the magic of Hans van Manen’s works and present us all with a selection of his ballets.
