Dance performance by the famous Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, with a Dance Workshop! Song of the dark forest is a dance performance by Scapino Ballet Rotterdam with live music. The story: An unknown soldier hovers between life and death. He longs to be reunited with his loved ones, but the memories of the battle hold him captive.
Songs by composers such as Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Mussorgsky, and Rachmaninoff, written with a message of peace against the backdrop of war, along with dances by four choreographers, tell this timeless story. The performance concludes with Sergei Akhunov's Prayer for Peace – the motto for the show.
Tickets sold by Studium Generale are only available to EUR-students.
Scapino Ballet Rotterdam collaborates with Opera2day and the Doelen Ensemble in Song of the dark forest.
