In 1974 Pina Bausch created her dance-opera »Iphigenie auf Tauris« to the music of the opera of the same name by Christoph Willibald Gluck. Accompanied by live singers and musicians, she employed her intensive and impulsive physical vocabulary to brilliantly interpret the story of the Greek princess Iphigenie, who serves as a priestess to Diana on the island of Tauris, and who is required to sacrifice her own brother – believed to be lost – to the goddess.
