Munich, 8 June 2018
The Ballet Production “A Quiet Evening of Dance“ winns the “Fedora“ Award. The award ceremony took place yesterday night in Munich. “A Quiet Evening of Dance” is a program by choreographer William Forsythe at London’s Sadler’s Wells Theater and includes four different works. This compilation “creates a dance evening that invites both listening and watching,” was the jury’s reasoning.

The preselection for the prizes had been met by the Professional Association of Opera Houses and Festivals in Europe, Opera Europa. The jury members included the ballet director of the Bavarian State Opera, Igor Zelensky.

FEDORA has established two Prizes, the FEDORA – GENERALI Prize for Opera, for new opera creations, and the FEDORA – VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet, for new ballet creations that are awarded to promising teams of co-producing partners and promising artists who collaborate on the creation of new opera or ballet co-productions.

These prizes lead the way in identifying the future talents in opera and ballet.
