Program notes

Revisit the story of Poppea, wife of infamous Roman emperor Nero in an award-winning reimagining by visionary German choreographer Christian Spuck on the stage of the Theaterhaus Stuttgart! The theatre's dynamic Gauthier Dance, founded in 2010 and already a notable name on the international dance scene, offer a vibrant interpretation of the legend, led by the incredible Eric Gauthier, in which the role of music is indispensable. In a chiaroscuro visual atmosphere imbued with cinematic grandeur, the graceful movements of the dancers blend with melodies and harmonies by a marvelously wide-ranging and eclectic selection of musical talents—from Monteverdi and Schubert to Emilíana Torrini and Cat Power—bring life and intensity to this timeless drama.
