In one week’s time, the formidable, 45-member cast of Germany’s Ballett Am Rhein or Dusseldorf Ballet will touch down in Israel for the first time. Led by artistic director Martin Schlapfer since 2009, the troupe is geared up to present Requiem at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center. The choice of program, being a full-length work, sets Ballett Am Rhein apart from many of its counterparts that have performed split bills by multiple choreographers.

Requiem is the vision of Schlapfer and is set to and inspired by Brahms’ A German Requiem.

A Swiss transplant to Germany, Schlapfer has long loved this piece of music and finally found the right time and place to bring it to the stage thanks to Ballett Am Rhein. The company will give five performances while in the country. This visit is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the diplomatic relationship between Israel and Germany.

Ballett Am Rhein will perform at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center on October 20-24. For more information, visit www.israel-opera.co.il.
