With two orchestras playing together it doens't seem easy to bring on tour, so I hope a DVD will come out sooner or later, hopefully with the extraordinary Hamburg Ballet: it's a pity that for economical reasons Neumeier's works are often out as DVDs danced by other companies (Die Kameliendame is a completely different thing danced by Paris Opera or ABT and not in good way: they seem light years away from the real work that can be seen in Hamburg).
A cast of great artists, they deserve to be named:
Julie: Alina Cojocaru (as guest from London Royal Ballet)
Liliom: Carsten Jung
Louis, thier son: Aleix Martìnez
The man with Balloons: Sasha Riva
Frau Muskat: Anna Polikarpova
Marie: Leslie Heylmann
Wolf Beifeld: Konstantin Tselikov
Ficsur: Lloyd Riggins
A sailor: Kiran West
Gate Keeper: Edvin Revazov
A Shy Young man: Alexandr Trusch
A sad Clown: Zachary Clark
Elmer, son of Marie and Wolf: Emanuel Amuchàstegui
Here are some other moments of the ballet

I'm in awe of Anna Polikarpova -- still going strong after all of these years!
She a wonderful dancer and a great artist. When you are an artist, passing years don't make you less interesting or weaker, they just change you in a different and new yourself.
Ivan Urban, her husband, will be Liliom in the second cast: moustache and beard for the occasion (at least he was wearing them at the premiere).
