“Prelude to War” Ballet Premiere in Germany

Last Friday I was very fortunate to attend the world premiere performance of “Prelude to War,” my ballet based on my scores for Battlestar Galactica.  The ballet was performed by the outstanding dancers of the Theaterhagen, in Hagen, Germany.  The choreography was by the resident choreographer Ricardo Fernando, and the orchestra was conducted by Bernhard Steiner.

When I was first approached about writing a ballet based on my Galactica scores, I leapt at the opportunity to translate my music to a new medium.  From my initial discussions with Ricardo it was clear that he and I shared a similar vision of the ballet.  We wanted to create a new and exciting narrative, using the music of the series but completely stripping it from the context of the show.

“Prelude to War” World Premiere Performance in March!

March 7th, 2009 will mark the first European performance of my music: The World Premiere of “Prelude to War” by the Hagen Philharmonic and Ballet of the Hagen Theatre in Germany.  It will run throughout the spring, for 13 weeks.

“Prelude” is based on my scores for Battlestar Galactica, incorporating music from all four seasons (see the full program order below).  The orchestra will be in the pit, but the taiko drums will share the stage with the dancers, incorporating their movements and energy into the visual performance.  This ballet tells no specific narrative, but rather allows the dancers, lights, taiko drum ensemble and full orchestra to come together and support the story within the music itself.
