Trailer «Lessons in Love and Violence»

«Lessons in Love and Violence» explores an unleashed love between men and its destructive dimensions. The material on which the opera is based was written by Christopher Marlowe, one of Shakespeare's contemporaries, who brought queer love to the theater stage for possibly the first time ever.

11 years of Christian Spuck in Zurich

The book on the era of Christian Spuck

At the beginning of the 2023/24 season, Christian Spuck will become artistic director of the Staatsballett Berlin and say goodbye to Ballett Zürich after eleven years. As director, he has had a decisive influence on the company since 2012 and has thrilled Zurich audiences time and again with sensual evenings of ballet characterized by dance mastery, moving stories and strong aesthetic images. With its charismatic dancers, Ballett Zürich has established itself not least internationally as a company of the highest quality.

To mark the end of Christian Spuck's directorship, a high-quality book is published with many large-format photos, reflective texts, personal dedications and a thorough chronicle.
