Hamburg Ballet: John Neumeier’s The Glass Menagerie


Hope, dreams and an insatiable desire – Tom Wingfield’s father has left the family a long time ago. All he has left back is a photo, a few old records and three deeply hurt souls. Every member of this small family is unhappy in one way or another and fatefully linked to the others.

Tennessee Williams called his drama a “Memory Play”. With The Glass Menagerie, he laid the foundation for his success and fame as one of the most important authors of the 20th century. John Neumeier applied this written masterpiece to the ballet stage, in a full length ballet with music by the American composers Charles Ives, Philip Glass and Ned Rorem.
