I prefer modern ballet(dance) to classical ones.And especially Nijinsky and Winterreise are my favorite ones. So I am going to see Nijinsky in Tokyo and Winterreise in Hiroshima.
I have seen both in Hamburg, and Nijinsky in Hongkong. They moved me a lot.

I saw Nijinsky in Tokyo on 3rd Feb, and Winterreise in Hiroshima on 9th Feb.
Nijinsky is always fascinating to me. The audience applauded enthusiastically. Especially, J. Bubenicek as Vaslav, Hattori as Stanislav, O. Bubenicek and Riabko as some of the Nijinsky dancers, Urban as Diaghilev, Riggins as Petrushka were so superb.
Winterreise in Hiroshima was very interesting to me. I felt another stories from the dancers who performed in Hiroshima, being different from the stores I had felt from Winterreise in Hamburg. I think Winterreise was performed only in Germany and Japan. It is not a joyful work to see, but I would like people all over the world to see it to feel and think something. The dancers in Hiroshima were aloso greeted with applause.
By the way, almost the dancers who came to Hiroshima on 8th, visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum immediately and were looking at the displays so seriously for a long time.
After the performane of Winterreise, some of the dancers said to me that to look at the displays of the museum helped him/her to understand their roles and the work or something like that(I'm sorry I cannot remember their words exactly). I was much moved by their words.

Thank you so much for telling us our impressions, sachikom. It was also interesting to hear abou the dancers visiting the Peace Memorial. It does not surprise me as peace issues are high on the agenda in Germany.

I'm hoping you will tell us more about your dance going experiences in the months to come.

No wonder about the sense of sorrow, intimate pain, and loneliness we felle watching this moving Winterreise. Neither wonder Neumeier chose to perform it in Hiroshima. The ballet was created immediately after Sept.11: the rehearsals were scheduled indeed just some days after the tragedy. So the intimate dolour all of us felt is in that ballet and in those 'strangers' walking alone in the winter of the soul.

Neumeier dancing along with the world on its journey

by MIKIKO MIYAKAWA
the Daily Yomiuri

The title of Winterreise was taken from the well-known collection of songs by Franz Schubert that focus on a young man's lost love, ...

Neumeier said he had "a very strong emotional reaction" to the work, adding that while he found the text of Winterreise by Wilhelm Mueller so fascinating, it was very mysterious at the same time.

"It is not clear what the lyrics to each song mean. But it is very beautiful, and it's very touching," he said.
