Leipziger Ballett’s Mario Schröder chose to offset Bach’s 18th century composition of the Canticle of Mary with classical Indian music that started in the same century. The two couldn’t be more different, producing conflicting bodily reactions. Both transport you.
Mario Schröder’s Swan Lake is pretty, dark and, most of all, real. Hurry. It’s sure to sell out.
In celebration of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s reformation, Mario Schröder has choreographed Bach’s Johannes Passion and it’s breathtakingly beautiful.

My first piece for Leipzig Zeitgeist (LZ) about Leipzig Ballet was when Mario Schröder first appeared on the scene. It felt right. I was new. The company as we now know it was new. I went to my first after party that night. I mainly watched, but I did meet some people that would enrich my life. I must say it’s a far cry from my current after party shenanigans. How many years has it been? Five! It feels like yesterday and yet, like a lifetime.
