John Neumeier’s free adaptation of Thomas Mann’s novella Death In Venice for the marvellous dancers of the Hamburg Ballett walks a fine line between astute theatricality and melodrama, between brilliant passages of movement and banal gestures. The primary message is that the life of an artist – even a famous, successful one – can be hell unless he’s in creative touch with his inner child, his emotions.

In a sense, my ballet is a love story with life. What fascinates me in Thomas Mann’s text is his depiction of absolute love. In my ballet, von Aschenbach is a master choreographer. Tadzio, however. causes the artist to confront a neglected aspect of his humanity. Resisting at first his emotional reaction to the boy, he seeks a purely artistic justification for this obsession. But, eventually he will surrender, turning from art to life – and ultimately to death in Venice. John Neurmeier.
