Introduction 45 min before the performance
World premières by Filipe Portugal,
Eva Dewaele and Christian Spuck
Christian Spuck has made it his mission to promote talented young dancers. He therefore attaches particular importance to creating choreographies for the Junior Ballet himself. Besides a new choreography of his own, other pieces will be staged in which the Junior Ballet will demonstrate its technical brilliance and virtuosity. Two highly talented members of the ensemble are responsible for two new choreographies. The Belgian Eva Dewaele is not only a dancer in Zurich Ballet, but also the company’s Ballet Mistress. One of the ensemble’s leading soloists is the Portuguese dancer Filipe Portugal. Like Eva Dewaele, he has not only introduced himself in the Young Choreographers series, but also created several pieces for Zurich Ballet and the Junior Ballet.
