MICHEL LEGRAND’S NEW BALLET!
WORLDWIDE OPENING NIGHT IN HAMBURG
We are very excited to announce a new aspect to the incredible talents of Michel Legrand. Michel has been working on an original score for a new “ballet legend” by the renowned choreographer John Neumeier for The Hamburg Ballet. The piece is titled ‘Liliom’ and is based on a play by Ferenc Molnár. Commissioned by The Hamburg Ballet and Hamburgischer Staatsoper, the score was premiered during their 2011/2012 season. The musical piece comprises elements of classical and jazz music and was performed by the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra and the NDR Big Band.
