Im Amsterdamer Musiktheater kam 2011 eine neue Version der ursprünglich 1892 im Mariinsky-Theater in St.Petersburg aufgeführten Fassung des Balletts ´Der Nußknacker´ auf die Bühne. Die beiden Choreographen Wayne Eagling und Toer van Schayk verlegten in ihrer Inszenierung ´Der Nußknacker und der Mäusekönig´ die Handlung nach Amsterdam des Jahres 1810 und ersetzten die üblichen Festtage zu Weihnachten durch die traditionelle niederländische Feier am Sinterklaas-Abend. Und so nimmt die faszinierende Geschichte um Clara Staalboom ihren Lauf.

DescriptionThe Billy Strayhorn Collection brings together 17 memorable pieces written, arranged or made famous by the man of whom Duke Ellington said ‘(He) was my right arm, my left arm, all the eyes in the back of my head’.A shy man who realised early on that his dream of a career in classical music was unlikely to become a reality because of his race, Strayhorn found a father figure and a lifelong employer in jazz man Ellington.The music presented here reflects the full range of Strayhorn’s talent and contains his two most famous compositions Take The ‘A’ Train and Lush Life. Either one would have granted Strayhorn immortality in jazz’s hall of fame, but he wrote and collaborated on so much more, doing it all in the role of a highly-valued but low-profile member of Ellington’s entourage.Ellington, a cultured man, had succeeded despite racism - and the tacit deal he struck with show business was to be the smiling guy in the spotlight. Strayhorn remained in the shadows and lived a life of quiet courage, working in the civil rights movement, living openly as a homosexual and using his abundant musical talent mainly for the good of the Ellington orchestra. Play his incomparable music and decide for yourself who got the better deal. The true answer is probably that we all did.A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing Balcony Serenade (from Perfume Suite) Chelsea Bridge Creole Love Call Dance Of The Floreadores (from The Nutcracker Suite) Johnny Come Lately Lotus Blossom Days Love Came Lush Life Multi-Colored Blue Paris Blues Passion Flower Peanut Brittle Brigade (from The Nutcracker Suite) Satin Doll Something To Live For Take The ´A´ Train Your Love Has Faded
