Goldberg-Variationen at La Scala

25 Jan-22 March.

JS Bach's Goldberg Variations are set to a choreography by Heinz Spoerli. The work is staged for the first time at La Scala although it was created in 1993. It comes after the success of Spoerli's Cello Suites in 2015 which inaugurated the series of ballets set to chamber music. The dancers of La Scala ballet company are accompanied on the piano by Alexey Botvinov. Spoerli turned to dance making – he would rather be called a dance maker than a choreographer – after a career as a dancer and company director. He retired from the Zurich Ballet five years ago but the company is still  committed to preserving his extensive repertoire of the reworking of many classical works as well as  his own creations.
