About

Beethoven Project is John Neumeier’s choreographic tribute to Ludwig van Beethoven, blending elements of narrative and symphonic ballets. Based on the “Eroica” Variations, piano and chamber music, the Prometheus ballet and the “Eroica” Symphony, John Neumeier describes his idea of the Beethoven Project: “My ballet – an attempt to give physical shape to the form and emotion of Beethoven’s music. The music continues to offer me the most direct biographical material. But, my choreography does not aim to illustrate any historical picture. I’m rather interested in the contradictory aspects of our image of Beethoven. As a choreographer, I look for equivalents that are communicated by movements alone.”
