Trailer «Timekeepers»

«Without a doubt, Ballett Zürich has become recognizably more feminine and also more versatile under its new director Cathy Marston, but above all it has grown together into a ravishingly beautiful company that does a fabulous job this evening.»

Orchestra La Scintilla

Wagner Mendelssohn Beethoven

During his nine years in Zurich, Richard Wagner conducted several concerts here. In addition to his own works, his programs frequently included works by Beethoven, whom he greatly admired. Mendelssohn, first revered and later denounced by Wagner, serves as a counterpart in this concert. The Orchestra La Scintilla plays on period instruments under the direction of Riccardo Minasi.
