'Rejoice, exult' John Neumeier turns Bach's Christmas Oratorio into an experience that confronts us all with the most basic questions of trust, hope, faith, doubt and self-sacrifice: 'My choreography is not a religious undertaking. We perform to Bach's music, for a few hours unifying individuals of many different cultural and religious backgrounds. For me, the basic human values expressed through the choreography are always the most important thing. Therefore, in my ballet, Mary is known simply as 'the Mother' and Joseph as 'her Husband'. Head of Hamburg Ballet, American-born John Neumeier´s celebrated ballet of Bach´s complete Christmas Oratorio is now available for the first time.
John Neumeier has made a name for himself with dramatic, story-driven ballets. Over the years, he has found great inspiration from emotion-packed works of literature, poetry and music.
