Schoenberg | Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night)

Award-winning choreographer Loughlan Prior fuses dance with music in his visceral adaption of Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night). Based on the mystical poem by Richard Dehmel, it is a celebration of new life, the duality of conflict and resolution and, ultimately, the reconciliation of one with the universe.

Coupled with Dvořák’s gorgeously Slavonic string quartet, this night of intimacy, intensity and spiritual metamorphosis is given life by BalletCollective Aotearoa and New Zealand String Quartet in a moving journey of courage, strength and human warmth.
