'In 1999 Sasha Waltz started working on her three-piece choreographic cycle about the human body. In 'Korper', following up this extraordinary research, she investigates the anatomy and the physical appearance of the human being, relating her dancers‘ bodies to architecture, science, and history, searching for the origin of life, of Eros, and of sensibility. 'noBody' asks about the metaphysical existence of humanity. PART III 'noBody' questions the metaphysical existence of humanity. It addresses the absence of the body, and confronts us with feelings that our own realization of being mortal awakes in us. Without a body, what makes us human? In 'noBody' the choreographer, accompanied by twenty-five dancers, faces the challenge of rendering the non-physical visible by using the physical body itself. 'noBody' is co-produced by the Festival d’Avignon. In July 2002, the piece was performed eight times at Cour d’Honneur, Pope Palace. Its unique historical setting, together with the Mendelsohnian architecture of the Schaubuhne, was a huge influence during the development of this production'. (Includes an eight minute bonus.

'Titian’s genius and significance in European art are undisputed. Trained at the Giovanni Bellini workshop and influenced by working together with Giorgione, he came to a masterly use of colour, light and shade. His oeuvre contains everything his times demanded: drama, carnal lust, religious fervour, mythology and portraits. Didier Baussy-Oulianoff takes us to the places where the renaissance artist devised his works and worked for the most influential courts. Contemporaries of Titian’s, such as Vasari and Aretino, also get a look in and we see that, in addition to being a gifted portrait-painter, Titian was also a skilled businessman'.

'1000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World' is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented – the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting. Throughout all the different epochs artists have been inspired by their personal environment. It is no wonder therefore that the city or metropolis has often played a key role in art. Estes, Delaunay, Stella, Caillebotte and Dahl also worked up their urban impressions in painting – with surprisingly different results. Featured works include Richard Estes - Ansonia [1977], Robert Delaunay - Eiffel Tower Champs de Mars [1911], Johann Christian Dahl - View of Dresden under a Full Moon [1839], Joseph Stella - The Brooklyn Bridge [1939] and Gustave Caillebotte - Paris Street Scene in the rain [1877]'.

Per its title, the documentary series 1000 GREAT MASTERPIECES FROM THE WORLD OF ART leads viewers on a systematic journey through art history, with each installment focusing on a specific school or collection. The programs draw on insights by the authors of short art surveys, who provide incisive commentaries that are then illustrated onscreen with specific works. This particular volume travels to the end of the Belle epoque, when a rise in global industrialization prompted artists to rebel against classicism in a diverse series of ways. Among these rebels were the Symbolists, who set out to create visual depictions of such elusive areas as subjective emotional states and the dream world. Meanwhile, the Jugendstil emerged, offering a linear, planar style which meshed with that of the Symbolists even as it stood on its own. Artworks glimpsed here include 'Salome' by Franz von Stuck, 'Madonna with Lilies' by Alfons Mucha and 'Spring Awakening' by Arnold Bocklin. (Reiner E. Moritz directs. Total running time approx. 50')

'1000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented – the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting. In 1874, a group of artists nicknamed the Impressionists scandalized Paris with its first exhibition. The spirit of these young en plein air painters, who declared that the essence of their art was about capturing the impression of the moment in the colourful play of light, was too revolutionary. Cassatt, Caillebotte, Liebermann, Krøyer and Edelfelt represented a worldwide revolt that ushered in modernism by breaking with conventional ways of seeing the world. Albert Edelfelt: Luxembourg Gardens [1887], Peter Severin Kroyer: Summer evening at Skagen [1892], Gustave Caillebotte: Paris street scene in the rain [1877], Max Liebermann: Women mending nets [1887- 1889], Mary Cassat - The bath [1891 - 1892]' are among the featured works.

Schmidt-Garre also follows the photograph to its final resting place, in the collection of Ukrainian art connoisseur Viktor Pinchuk. Along the way, experts turn up for commentary including Hilla Becher, Werner Spies and Gursky himself. Also includes Gursky in conversation with Schmidt-Garre. (English subtitles.

Performances from the Komische Oper in Berlin of Beethoven's 'Fidelio', Mozart's 'Don Giovanni', Janacek's 'The Cunning Little Vixen', Mozart's 'The Marriage of Figaro', Offenbach's 'Barbe-bleue', Verdi's 'Othello' and Offenbach's 'Tales of Hoffmann'.

Review: Seven of Felsenstein's productions were filmed under his supervision, some remodeled from their stage versions, some filmed 'straight'. None of them represent 'authentic' versions of the operas at hand; some are in black & white, only one of the seven [Fidelio] is sung in its proper language, and that one is drastically cut [for the better]. But there is a level of dramatic creativity here that is so fascinating, so worth your study and your ponder, that this handsomely produced Art-Haus box cannot be dismissed. And in the case of the 'drastically cut' Fidelio, which is furthermore played in fresh German air rather than on a stodgy stage set, I cannot see anyone going back to all that silly operetta stuff at the beginning of the original score, once we learn the essence of Beethoven's true drama. But it is the Vixen that really sells this set. Felsenstein moved his production from the opera house to East German TV studios, where he could have a free hand with the forest insects and animals, and with the yokels of the human story as well. The interaction among the species is simply fabulous in the literal sense; the wooing of the two foxes will take you to within earshot of Tristan. Rudolf Asmus, who sings the Forester, was one of the few notable stars of Felsenstein's East German company; a few Americans had also slipped through the Curtain and show up in minor roles. Nobody in his company is less than competent; the once-famous Magda Laszlo is Fidelio's Fidelio, the voice-over for a handsome lad who actually looks the part. -- SoIveHeard.com, Alan Rich, February 2009
