    Seven Musical Heroes Going Wild featuring music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Gabriel Fauré, Gustav Holst and others

    for ages 7 and up

    Reunion for a breakout show! It was four years ago that HEROÏCA premiered, the first production by Young Performance. Seven young musicians arm themselves with their instruments and take the stage. The trombone wants to play violin, the clarinet duly wants to pound the drums – how can that go well? HEROÏCA gets the notes to dance, transforming a classical concert into a stage show for listening viewers. And it has thrilled young and old not only in Lucerne but on tours that have taken HEROÏCA throughout Switzerland and to such venues abroad as the new Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, and the Philharmonie in Cologne; it also won the acclaimed Young Ears Prize in 2014. The Luxembourgian Dan Tanson invented and staged the whole thing. Since he is our “artiste étoile” in the “Summer of Childhood” in 2018, HEROÏCA comes back to where it began, on the shores of Lake Lucerne. For everyone who has not yet seen this thrilling musical spectacle. And for all who would like to see and be enchanted by it once again.

    Dan Tanson

    Dan Tanson wurde 1971 in Luxemburg geboren. Vor seinem Studium der Visuellen Kommunikation in Brüssel besuchte er Kurse für Jonglieren, Clownerie, Puppenspiel, Bewegungstheater, Improvisationstheater und Zeitgenössischen Tanz in Brüssel, Regensburg, Mons, Prag und Luxemburg. Seit 1995 arbeitete er hauptberuflich in den letztgenannten Disziplinen wie auch mit Regiearbeiten im Bereich Puppentheater und als Schauspieler. Daneben ist er als Bühnen- und Puppenbildner für Theaterstücke und spielpädagogische Projekte tätig. Bereits im Sommer 2011 begeisterte Dan Tanson die jungen Hörer von LUCERNE FESTIVAL mit der Produktion Rocky Roccoco, für die er zusammen mit dem Sonus Brass Ensemble und der Choreographin Ela Baumann den «Yeah-Award 2011» in der Kategorie «Performance» gewann.
