The Visit

For ‘Der Besuch’ / ‘The Visit,’ ballet director Jörg Mannes drew inspiration from Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s famous tragicomedy ‘The Visit.’

Erst zu spät erkennen die Bewohner in "Der Besuch" den hohen Preis des Geldes.

The former fallen woman Claire is now the wealthiest female in the world; she returns to her impoverished hometown, where she takes perfidious revenge on her former lover. While with Dürrenmatt everything revolves around the creeping corruptibility of bourgeois morals, choreographer Jörg Mannes focuses on the character of Claire in his fast-paced ballet: Once rejected, the now self-confident millionaire and merciless avenging angel Claire possesses different facets that are impressively choreographed by Jörg Mannes and vividly interpreted by the ballet of the Staatsoper Hannover.
