Red Bull Flying Bach

Featuring Berlin-based dance troupe and four-time break dance world champions, The Flying Steps, Red Bull Flying Bach combines contemporary breakdance with live classical music.

The show features the seven break dancers of The Flying Steps along with contemporary Swedish dancer Anna Holmström in a series of vignettes, each showcasing a stunning array of breaking, popping and locking, flares, head and hand spins, footwork and acrobatics.

Opera director and pianist extraordinaire Christoph Hagel serves as Music Director, performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier live. In between Bach’s rolling preludes and fugues for solo piano and harpsichord, electronic beats created by Ketan and Vivian Bhatti turn traditional melodies into modern anthems.

In the past year, the band has completed three sold-out runs here and scored a multi-format smash hit with its debut single, “Pompeii,” which has sold nearly three million downloads.

Bad Blood, Bastille’s debut album, entered the albums chart at No. 1 in the U.K., where it closed out 2013 as the biggest selling debut album and the biggest selling digital album. It has sold more than 750,000 units in the U.S. The band, which was named an MTV 2014 “Artist to Watch,” has received a BRIT Award (British Breakthrough Act) and a Woodie Award (Best Cover).
