The Ninth Symphony by Maurice Béjart

It might just be the single most famous piece of classical music in the world: Beethoven’s 9th symphony. The call for universal brotherhood which sounds from the symphony’s final movement has not lost any of its power or importance throughout the centuries.

Maurice Béjart’s compelling staging of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony has been enchanting audiences worldwide since its inception. The unforgettable music and choreography from this production powerfully convey Beethoven’s and Schiller’s quintessential idea that “Alle Menschen werden Brüder” (All men will be brothers). From the stage of the NHK Hall in Tokyo 250 dancers and musicians send this message out into the world. “It is a ‘manifestation’, in the deepest sense of the word.” Maurice Béjart. This performance of Maurice Béjart’s “Ninth Symphony” has been performed at the NHK Hall, Tokyo on the 8th & 9th of November, 2014. It is the very first recording for TV and DVD!
