Heinz Spoerli

Heinz Spoerli was born in Basel in 1940 and trained with Walter Kleiber. His first engagement took him to the Stadttheater Basel under Wazlaw Orlikowsy. Between 1963 and 1973 he danced as a soloist with the ballet company in Cologne under Todd Bolender, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Grands Ballets Canadiens in Montreal, Basel Ballet and at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. From 1967 on, he created his first choreographic works. Spoerli’s breakthrough as a choreographer came in 1972 with »Le chemin« at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. From 1973 until 1991 he was ballet director and chief choreographer at the Stadttheater Basel and choreographed dance creations as well as new interpretations of classical ballets such as »La fille mal gardée«, »Giselle«, »Coppélia«, »Romeo und Julia«, »Der Nussknacker«, »Schwanensee« as well as »Chäs«, »Miniaturen«, »Dead End« and »Loops«. In 1991 he was appointed ballet director of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf for 5 years. His choreographies included »Swan Lake«, »Sleeping Beauty«, »Josephslegende« and »Goldberg-Variationen«. From 1996 to 2012 Spoerli directed the Zurich Ballet and shaped the ensemble into one of the leading ballet companies in Europe. In Zurich, he choreographed new versions of ballet classics such as »Cinderella«, »Coppélia«, »Don Quixote« and »Raymonda«. Among the most significant works of his Zurich era were the ballets »... und mied den Wind« and »In den Winden im Nichts«, »Approaching Clouds«, »Allem nah, allem fern« to Gustav Mahler’s 5th Symphony, »moZART«, »Les débauches du rêve«, »Peer Gynt« and Mahler’s »Das Lied von der Erde«.
