Program notes

The great Heinz Spoerli followed up an eminently successful ballet career with many legendary years as a choreographer—or, as he describes himself, a “dance maker,” whose formal and stylistic range is truly remarkable. Near the end of his decades-long tenure as artistic director of the Ballett Zürich in 2012, he produced the gloriously graceful Magnificat: If Today Were Tomorrow, and Yesterday Today, a rare ballet set to Bach that feels at once contemporary and timeless.
