It is always a privilege for a dancer to be part of a creation, and an absolute joy for Friedemann to share the stage again with Paris Opera Ballet étoile and Artistic Director of Rome Opera Ballet Eleonora Abbagnato for this new collaboration with the Rome Opera Ballet. Nuit Blanche, choreographed by French choreographer Sébastien Bertaud and costumes of which are designed by the Christian Dior fashion house, will have its world premiere on 29 March 2019 in Rome as part of a Philip Glass evening.

Having worked closely together with the Rome Opera Ballet on Roland Petit’s La Chauvre Souris in 2016, Friedemann is looking forward to return to Rome as guest artist at the company again in May 2018, this time to perform Kenneth McMillan’s celebrated classic Manon with their Artistic Director and Paris Opera Ballet Étoile Eleonora Abbagnato. Whilst Friedemann and Eleonora have danced together before, this will be their first partnership for this beloved ballet tragedy. Friedemann will reprise his critically acclaimed role of Chevalier Des Grieux end of May at Teatro Costanzi in Rome.
