British choreographer David Dawson's contemporary take on a classic (created for Dresden SemperOper ballet). What do you think?

Looks interesting!

 

Also - the company in Essen is performing this work this season.  (Canadian Aidan Gibson dancing Myrtha).

Oh, very interesting.  Dawson is one of the current set of choreographers who seems intent on finding what he can do with the ballet heritage, rather than augmenting it with big chunks of other traditions.  I'll be curious to see what people think about this production.
