The little guy with his mustache, his bowler hat and his bamboo cane is world-famous. But who is the man behind this figure? Mario Schröder wondered the same thing when choreographing Chaplin. His rise to fame makes Chaplin a person of public interest. The clown becomes political. America's conservatives are, however, suspicious of Chaplin's convictions. Suspected of communism, he is eventually expelled.
The ballet describes Chaplin's life in relation to his creative work and shows that an artist who observes his environment both sensitively and consciously is behind the funny Tramp.
Chaplin is a colourful and magnificient dance production from the Opera Leipzig, dance in the highest perfection and mastery of modern technology.
Under the direction of dance expert Sonia Paramo, this unique production about the great master Charles Chaplin, promises to be a breathtaking experience.
"It's an image that goes straight to your heart: Geraldine Chaplin, the great Charlie's daughter, storms onstage, takes Mario Schröder in her arms and simply doesn't let go. A Prototypical scene for this just one and a half hour evening, marking the beginning of a new era in Leipzig." - Leipziger Volkszeitung
"Schröder's ballet, ‘Chaplin’ is a grand, marvelous dream of a man in search of himself, in search of a language to deliver a direct message, for the indirect ones, he finds body language and thus his tone of truth." - Tanznetz
