The dance performance Rhapsody is as a symphonic poem, where the dance in interaction with classical opera pieces describes the price of passion. Tim Rushton and Kim Brandstrup have each choreographed a piece for this evening, where Danish Dance Theatre’s international dancers create a moving picture of the everyday life filled with loneliness, dreams and longing.

Don Giovanni
Mozart’s masterpiece Don Giovanni hardly needs any introduction. The dramatic acuity of the playful plot, the libretto’s virtuoso treatment of the legendary material and the clear perspective on the characters created by the music have all justifiably given Don Giovanni a special place in the history of the arts. Highly influential on subsequent generations of artists, philosophers and critics, the legend of Giovanni has stirred audiences since its 1787 premiere, and is one of the 20 most-performed operas to this day.

An abandoned and betrayed human is going on a journey towards death in an open winter landscape. This is the story behind Elfenbenstaarnet’s production of Franz Schubert’s classic Winterreise. Using electronic sound pictures, puppeteers and exquisite paper cuttings (by visual artist Peter Callesen), it is performed by mezzosoprano Trine Bastrup Møller, pianist Julie Andkjær Olsen, and the puppeteer Henriette Aarup.
