1,400 people witnessed the Red Bull Flying Bach opening night at Teatro Municipal de Santiago. The audience of the most antique and classical theatre in Chile were clearly thrilled about receiving one of the most anticipated cultural events of the year.

With two sold out shows, Christoph Hagel and the Flying Steps showed Santiago de Chile why Red Bull Flying Bach, where high culture meets urban art, is such a success worldwide.

At 8pm the lights of Teatro Municipal de Santiago went out and Hagel opened with the first prelude of the evening; starting a night of breakdance, classical music and powerful performance.

For the first time in the Americas, the Flying Steps performed The Well Tempered Clavier of Johann Sebastian Bach in an amazing show of urban dance. “The Chilean audience really loved the show; we gave our best and it really showed on stage. The show was really great and people clapped every act. It was a great experience,” said Swedish dancer Anna Holmström after performing.

With another show in Santiago to go, the expectations of the crew remain the same. “We really hope the people tonight react the same way as the audience of the opening night. It’s a really nice show and we are sure Chile thinks the same way,” added Michael Rosemann.
