Biographies


Christian Spuck, Choreografie

Christian Spuck

Christian Spuck comes from Marburg and was trained at the John Cranko School in Stuttgart. He began his dance career with Jan Lauwers’ Needcompany and Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker’s Ensemble Rosas. In 1995 he became a member of the Stuttgart Ballet and served as the company’s resident choreographer from 2001 to 2012. In Stuttgart he created fifteen world premieres, including the story ballet Lulu. Eine Monstretragödie after Frank Wedekind, Der Sandmann and Das Fräulein von S. after E.T.A. Hoffmann.

Christian Spuck has also worked with numerous renowned ballet companies in Europe and the USA. The Return of Ulysses (guest performance at the Edinburgh Festival) was created for the Royal Ballet of Flanders, and Woyzeck (after Georg Büchner) was premiered at the Norwegian National Ballet Oslo. The ballet Die Kinder, premiered at the Aalto Ballett Theater Essen, was nominated for the Prix Benois de la Danse. His ballet Leonce und Lena (also after Georg Büchner) was likewise premiered in Essen. It was subsequently taken over by the Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal and the Stuttgart Ballet. The world premiere of Poppea//Poppea for Gauthier Dance at the Theaterhaus Stuttgart was voted one of the ten most successful dance productions worldwide by the magazine Dance Europe in 2010 and was awarded the German Theatre Prize DER FAUST in 2011 as well as the Italian Danza/Danza Award.

Christian Spuck is also active in the field of opera. Gluck’s Orphée et Euridice at the Staatsoper Stuttgart (2009) was followed by Verdi’s Falstaff at the Staatstheater Wiesbaden (2010), Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust (2014) and Wagner's Der fliegende Holländer (2017) at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Since the 2012/13 season, Christian Spuck has been director of the Ballett Zürich. Thus far, his Romeo und Julia, Leonce und Lena, Woyzeck and Der Sandmann have been shown here. The ballet Anna Karenina after Lew Tolstoy, which premiered in Zurich in 2014, was taken over by the Norwegian National Ballet Oslo, the Stanislavski Theatre in Moscow, the Korean National Ballet in Seoul, and the Bavarian State Ballet. Recent projects in Zurich included Verdi's Messa da Requiem (a co-production of the Opernhaus Zürich and Ballett Zürich) and Nussknacker und Mausekönig. His latest ballet Winterreise premiered in October 2018.
