Ib Andersen’s Eroica – Streaming Sunday June 14, 2020 only

Recommended Posts

The program notes for Eroica say:

“Created in response to these divisive times (May 2018 premiere), Andersen devises a contemporary allusion to the philosophical innovations, personal realizations, and political confrontations that Beethoven experienced when he wrote his Third Symphony…”

So there was apparently some sort of allusion to contemporary politics underlying the choreography. Personally, I never got it, and contented myself with simply enjoying the evening.

Then again, there were those attendees who misread the title of the ballet and came expecting something a bit more steamy…

My favorite movement: the third (Allegro vivace). In the pas de quatre, Ricardo Santos makes every move look perfectly natural...
