A Streetcar Named Desire: one of the classics of American drama

is a profound psychological story set in the South of the United States that follows the lives of Stella, her husband Stanley and her sister Blanche. John Neumeier was inspired by the story and created the ballet, which was first performed in 1983. The premiere of this production at the Estates Theatre will be a continuation of the dramaturgical line of intimate narrative titles of the world dance theater scene inspired by important literary masterpieces, such as the ballets Kafka: The Trial or Leonce & Lena.

The introduction of this title is an extremely important achievement in dramaturgy, as it is the very first time that the name of John Neumeier appears in the repertoire of the Czech National Ballet, which thus ranks among the world's major ensembles. The production will not only satisfy the audience's expectations and calls for dramatic work, but it will also offer a challenge for the soloists to deeply and tentatively develop their acting abilities. A native of Milwaukee, John Neumeier is a world-renowned American choreographer and the artistic director of the Hamburg Ballet, which he has been leading since 1973. Neumeier has created over 160 ballet works and collaborated with most of the major dance scenes around the world. He is best known as an excellent narrator.
