For the shoot to the next Staatsballett masterpiece Das Flammende Herz Wladimir Malakhov, the first solo dancer and leader of the company, jumped into deep waters. After the success of the incredible Snow White the Staatsballett Berlin is going back to the roots showing an intellectual performance focused on the philosophy of the poet Peter Shelley, the husband of Mary Shelley who is famous for the novel Frankenstein. If the photos in any way indicate what we can expect from the play this will again be a dark fantasy of a ballet on a Berlin theater stage. Another picture and the dates after the jump.
First night will be on June 20. Further shows on June 22, 25, and 28 and July 2, 2009.
