The premiere of the dance festival "The World of John Neumeier" in fall 2022 was a crowd puller. With "Sleeping Beauty," a favorite piece in his repertoire, John Neumeier is following it up in 2023. In his version of the fairy tale ballet based on Tchaikovsky and Petipa, the prince, a person of our time, meets Sleeping Beauty - a dream princess from the era of classical ballet. The question remains: is there a good awakening? "Dona Nobis Pacem," John Neumeier's latest choreography, is a prayer for peace in the language of dance. For in "The World of John Neumeier" there is room for the hope that all art lovers share: Dreams can move worlds.
