John Neumeier / Heinrich Hollreiser: Josephs Legende

2007 NR

Richard Strauss's ballet based on the biblical story of Joseph's encounter with Potiphar and his wife gets an erotically charged interpretation in this John Neumeier-choreographed production featuring Judith Jamison as Potiphar's spouse. Heinrich Hollreiser conducts the Viennese Philharmonic in Strauss's lush and intricate score, and Karl Musil, Kevin Haigen and Franz Wilhelm dance the roles of the Angel, Joseph and Potiphar, respectively.
