Endstation Sehnsucht back on stage in January
Posted 18 December 2003 - 08:55 AM
On January 4th Reid Anderson and John Neumeier invite to a ballet-talk about this ballet. It was choreographed for the Stuttgart Ballet by John Neumeier and had its world-premiere in december 1983.
John Neumeier was inspired by Tennessee Williams work 'A streetcar named desire'.
The mainrole, Blanche du Bois, was originally danced by Marcia Haydee. This time Alessandra Ferri is supposed to dance a couple of performances.
I really hope that my favourite female dancer in Stuttgart, Sue Jin Kang, will have the chance to be in the cast.
Endstation Sehnsucht was the 2nd. ballet after Lady of the Camellias which John Neumeier choreographed for Marcia Haydee and the Stuttgart Ballet after the death of John Cranko.

I heard that Maria Eichwald is supposed to dance in the ballet, but don't know any more details...
Keeping my fingers crossed for Sue Jin Kang, too - she's such a lovely actress!!

Alessandra Ferri as Blanche seems to be the only name announced yet.
Sue Jin Kang said in an interview that the role of Blanche du Bois would be the only role of the Stuttgart repertoire she has not danced yet and that she sees this role as a big challenge. Since I love her dancing-acting very much I hope we will find her name in the cast list.
I have not heard about Maria Eichwald in this ballet.

Here is a review from the famous Horst Koegler:

John Neumeier said in an interview that he wanted a mature dancer because Endstation Sehnsucht was one of the very few of his ballets which was done for a special person (Marcia Haydee).
Sure, Alessandra Ferri is fantastic but i had expected Sue Jin Kang at least in the B-cast.
Sue Jin Kang is a wonderful dancer/actor and has danced all the big dramatic roles with Stuttgart Ballet.

I am sorry but it is in German. It is a bit long for a translation into English.
If anybody is really interested in the English version please ask but it will need some time for translation.
