The three-part evening Wings of Memory with works by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Jiří Kylián and Pina Bausch is the focus point of the 2025 Ballet Festival Week with a one-off series of performances over six days. Bausch's epoch-making interpretation of Igor Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps takes centre stage. First performed at the Wuppertal Opera House in 1975, the 35-minute work is now one of the signature pieces of the dance theatre legend, who died in 2009. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's version of Claude Debussy's instrumental work Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and Bella Figura by Jiří Kylián can also be seen as part of this three-part programme.
