World premieres by Alessandra Corti, Louis Stiens and Martin Chaix

The Vienna State Ballet’s final premiere under the direction of Martin Schläpfer presents three Viennese debuts – with world premieres by a younger generation of choreographers.

Alessandra Corti explores the theme of human identity and takes her inspiration from processes of tension that can be read as prismatic phenomena or as collective experiences. The title of her piece, Aerea – a palindrome without a beginning or an end – alludes to its ethereal and elusive nature. Its music is based on Rewriting Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony – Michael Gordon’s humorous and disconcerting take on a classic.
