Dona Nobis Pacem – A ballet by John Neumeier


Music by Johann Sebastian Bach (Mass in b minor)


"Dona Nobis Pacem" – give us peace. This title is of great importance to me – even at the risk of seeming naïve, sentimental or even pretentious. In light of the constant and growing tensions in our world, this thought remains an important aspiration and inspires me to approach Johann Sebastian Bach's multifaceted composition (Mass in B minor) with conviction. In my 50th season as artistic director, I consider this creation a great opportunity.” John Neumeier A Historic Document The film version of “Dona Nobis Pacem” takes us close to the creative evolution of this ballet. Even though there were very high expectations, John Neumeier agreed for the first time in his career to have one of his ballets filmed during the week of the world premiere. Thus, the film became an impressive document of the outstanding quality of the Hamburg Ballet ensemble. It excels not only in terms of technical brilliance, but also expressive intensity and wholehearted dedication.
