    Debut performance

    Werner Stiefel, born in 1954 in Malchin/Mecklenburg, worked from 1972-90 at the ballet of the Oper Leipzig, first as a group and later as first solo dancer. He later switched for six years to the Schauspiel Leipzig’s Tanztheater. Since 1990 he choreographs his own chamber dance evenings, such as Erwins Stache’s »Pas de Triangel« with sound machines (invited at the euro-scene Leipzig 1992) and »BB-Stübl« (»BB Chamber«) at the Oper Halle in 1993. In »Bachsche Verwirrungen« (»Bach-like confusion«, 1994) he turns towards Bach’s music for the first time.

    Stiefel’s children programmes also were very successful. In his latest piece »Der geklaute Tretesel« (»The snitched Bike«, 1998) Stiefel also included the vocalist ensemble amarcord. This excellent and also internationally very successful a-cappella choir consists of five former members of the famous Thomanerchor (Thomanus Choir).
