World Premiere of Flanders Field

After a successful debut with Rosenkavalier in 2014, ​Philipp Pointner returns to the Royal Opera and Ballet of Flanders to conduct performances of ‘Flanders Fields’, a programme in memory of Jeanne Brabants, commemorating the horrors of the Great War. A common thread of misunderstanding, fear, loss, and a lust for power runs through the choreographic works which will be presented under this title:

Dialogue (Jeanne Brabant)
In Flanders Fields (Ricardo Amarante)
Forgotten Land (Jiri Kylian)
The Green Table (Kurt Jooss)

Premiere: Saturday 9th May, 2015.
Gent: 10th, 12th, 16th and 17th May.
Antwerp: 29th, 30th and 31st May, 5th, 6th and 7th June, 2015.
