Alexei Ratmansky is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after choreographers of our time. He has proven his talent for working with great classical companies both in his reconstructions of important classics and in his own story ballets and abstract new creations. In 2014 he created Pictures at an Exhibition for the New York City Ballet to Modest Mussorgsky’s famous composition in the original version for piano. The choreography is sensitively interwoven with the character of the respective musical numbers, sometimes celebratory shiny, sometimes heavy melancholic and then again cheerful, airy and playful. The ten dancers meet in various constellations and before the viewer’s eyes form a living connection with the stage set. The constantly transforming projections of Wassily Kandinsky’s Colour Study, Squares with Concentric Circles afford the action on the stage an additional dynamic level, while designer Adeline André’s costumes are visibly inspired by Kandinsky’s images. The result is an organic, entirely harmonised piece, which finds a new life here in Munich of all places, where Kandinsky himself lived and worked for several years.

British choreographer David Dawson is one of the few contemporary choreographers that continue to further develop classical ballet and its language of movement with their works. In his both narrative and abstract ballets he confronts dance with atmospherically charged stage worlds and consequently creates poignant contemporariness. For his creation at the Bayerisches Staatsballett Dawson works with the music of the contemporary Canadian composer, Marjan Mozetich. Affairs of the Heart is a concerto for violin and strings, a lyrically and dramatically charged composition filled with driving force.

The Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal will complete the evening with her piece  Bedroom Folk. The ballet was created together with the  Nederlands Dans Theater 1 in 2015. Eyal is one of the most notable names in contemporary choeography and started her career, while still dancing with the Batsheva Dance Company. Her style is known to be radical, at times touching or unsettling.  Bedroom Folk represents the collaborative effort to put sound and lighting side by side with the performance, suggesting the feeling of equality between the three elements.

Robertas Šervenikas, studierte Dirigieren am Konservatorium in St. Petersburg. 1993 begann er mit dem Nationalen Litauischen Sinfonieorchester in Vilnius zu arbeiten und ist nun sein erster Gastdirigent. Ab 1997 wurde er wiederholt zum Evian Festival Frankreich eingeladen, wo er die Philharmonie der Nationen, sowie das Orchestra Synfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi mit Mstislav Rostropovich als Solisten leitete. Seit dieser Zeit dirigierte Šervenikas das Nationale Litauische Sinfonieorchester auf Tourneen nach Deutschland, Frankreich, Niederlande, Schweden, Finnland, Estland und Lettland. Er machte sich besonders um die Uraufführung litauischer Komponisten verdient und zählt zu den talentiertesten litauischen Dirigenten seiner Generation. In Anerkennung seiner Verdienste erhielt Robertas Šervenikas den Litauischen Nationalpreis und ist Gastdirigent des Litauischen Kammerorchesters. Im Februar 2008 wurde Šervenikas zum Musik-Direktor des Litauischen Nationaltheaters für Oper und Ballett (LNOBT) ernannt.

Mit der musikalischen Leitung des Violakonzerts von Sofia Gubaidulina beim Bayerischen Staatsballett gab er im April 2008 sein Debut als Dirigent des Bayerischen Staatsorchesters. Die Zusammenarbeit wurde in der Spielzeit 2008/2009 in größerem Rahmen fortgesetzt, als Šervenikas das Ballett Der Sturm dirigierte, eine Partitur, die den 1. und 4. Satz von Bruckners 4. Sinfonie, Sibelius' 7. Sinfonie und die Sturm-Tondichtungen von Sibelius und Tschaikowsky umfasst. Daneben weitete er seine Arbeit am Nationaltheater in Vilnius aus mit Opern- und Ballettdirigaten (u.a. Boris Godunow).
In der Spielzeit 2012/2013 übernahm Robertas Šervenikas die musikalische Leitung für den Abend Forever Young beim Bayerischen Staatsballett und begleitete das Ensemble als musikalische Leitung gemeinsam mit dem Slowenischen Nationalorchester Ljubliana im April 2014 in den Oman, wo das Staatsballett drei Vorstellungen von John Crankos Romeo und Julia im Royal Opera House Muscat tanzte.
