Winterreise is one of Franz Schubert's most famous works, composed in 1827 for tenor and piano, shortly after Beethoven’s death, Schubert was 30 years old and had but one year to live. Winterreise is a highly moving cycle of 24 Lieder based on poems by Wilhelm Müller, particularly symbolic of German romanticism, specifically by a feeling of despair, which corresponded closely to Schubert's state of mind one year before his death: ill with syphilis for many years and very weak, the musician had not found the recognition that should have been his and was truly discouraged. He died of typhoid one year later.

Winterreise is obviously a mystical journey through the lonely Viennese countryside, where everything that belongs to happiness appears only as a memory and an illusion. From this mythical composition, Angelin Preljocaj has drawn a profound work that follows text and music as closely as possible. The hypnotic journey of the traveller, his frozen tears under the cloudy sky, his exhaustion as he drags his feet forward, his dreams of spring flowers and the white waters of the stream, find in Preljocaj and his dancers the subtlest expressions of breathtaking beauty. When he created this ballet for the Teatro della Scala, the singer and pianist were placed in the orchestra pit to participate actively in the show. Here they are together again, but this time with the dancers of the Ballet Preljocaj, for a musically and choreographically poignant work.
