Mahler's 3rd Symphony, written as "a great hymn to the glory of all creation," combined with John Neumeier's lyrical and powerful choreography, creates an elegant and inspired evening of dance. From the Paris Opera Ballet.
The entire edifice of John Neumeier’s work is built around a profound musical sensibility. However, the choreographer, in his constant questioning of the human condition, probably finds the closest reflection of his own humanist concerns in the works of Gustav Mahler, several of whose symphonies he has set to dance.
