In January 2019, Angelin Preljocaj will sign off on a new creation for the Ballet of La Scala Milan, a world premiere within the stimulating virtuous circle of ballets to chamber music orchestrated by the Teatro alla Scala.
For the first time, the choreographer has chosen to work on a work by Franz Schubert, Die Winterreise (The Winter Journey), the Austrian composer’s masterpiece. A score for piano and voice to poems by Wilhelm Müller, a score of profound melancholy, whose episodes mark out the desperate journey of a man betrayed by his beloved. An immersion in the poetic universe of Lieder whose emotional charge guides the audience into the abyss of an inner journey.
„Projects to chamber music create, through their very structure, a complicity between the musicians, the dancers and the audience; like a magic triangle. Much more than with a large orchestra.
That’s one of the reasons why I chose Winterreise : Schubert’s 24 Lieder generate an intimate atmosphere that I would like to share in this winter journey. Which is, in fact, a journey through life. I imagine it like a winter garden, a place where winter is present but where the other seasons are also presaged. An experimental laboratory of life.“
