Dona Nobis Pacem

The World of John Neumeier

Dancing Bach means committing oneself: to life, to faith, to Baroque images, and to the needs of today. John Neumeier never approaches the composer coolly from the outside or by celebrating his greatness with a museum-like approach, as shown by decisions such as a dancer taking on the role of Jesus himself in the St Matthew Passion: in order to expose oneself to such themes as pain, hope, and redemption. His interpretation was filmed by the SWR in the Festspielhaus. We experienced the Christmas Oratorio and John’s BJB Bach, and heard excerpts from the Musikalisches Opfer in Death in Venice. Dona Nobis Pacem now follows – also as a kind of legacy.
