for the benefit of the Christoph Lohfert Stiftung
TICKETS are available at advance booking offices and the Elbphilharmonie ticket shop:
Choreographies specially created for Kammerballetten by international award-winning artists will be presented. The musicians of Trio Vitruvi accompany the pieces live with cello, violin, and piano. The result will be an unforgettable evening in which chamber music and modern ballet form a new, moving symbiotic relationship.
"With this dance evening, the Christoph Lohfert Foundation is showing its commitment to culture and performing arts to a wider public for the first time. Its promotion was immensely important to the founder Christoph Lohfert. We are delighted that we can present such a unique and innovative event with Trio Vitruvi and the dancers from Kammerballetten - and to do so at the Elbphilharmonie, one of the most exciting venues in Europe. This evening would please the founder very much." (Chairman of the Christoph Lohfert Foundation, Carolina Lohfert Praetorius)
Kammerballetten was founded in 2018 by Trio Vitruvi with Niklas Walentin, violin, Jacob la Cour, cello, and Alexander McKenzie, piano, and has since presented world premieres of new ballet works at the Royal Danish Opera House in Copenhagen and at international festivals. Kammerballetten is supported by Augustinus Fonden, Copenhagen.
