Tragedy is laid bare on the stage in the critically acclaimed Betroffenheit – a word which describes the overwhelming feeling of shock and torment in the wake of disaster.
Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Crystal Pite and actor-playwright Jonathon Young join forces to examine the aftermath of Young’s personal tragedy, exploring what happens to a person after experiencing the all-too imaginable, and creating an “inspiring dance theatre hybrid” (The Observer) stark with unflinching honesty.
Choreographed to the rhythm of Young’s words, the trauma of loss and the long road to recovery are uncovered through comedy and drama, poetry and movement.
The piece is co-created by Kidd Pivot and Electric Company Theatre.

Igor Levit piano Beethoven
Piano Sonata No. 27 in E minor Op. 90 Piano Sonata No. 28 in A major Op. 101 Piano Sonata No. 29 in B flat major Op. 106 'Hammerklavier'
Friday 17 March 2017 - 7:30pm
The full expressive, emotional and inventive range of the three late sonatas in Igor Levit’s programme, crowned by the monumental complexity and aesthetic weight of the ‘Hammerklavier’, encapsulate the composer’s late style.
Just the first movement of Op. 90 alone charts an impassioned course through despair and contrasting feelings of vitality and sadness.
Classical Opera presents a rare new production of Mozart’s first stage work, composed when he was just eleven years old.
Mozart’s score represents the first part of a three-part sacred drama which was performed in Salzburg in 1767, but the two remaining parts are lost. The music is full of tender beauty, dynamism and descriptive flair, and the young composer’s innate understanding and sympathy for the human condition already shine through.
Young, prize-winning Cellist, Jamal Aliyev, joins together with one of the world’s leading young pianists, Anna Federova, to record his debut CD with Champs Hill Records.
