You think Bach and breakdance don't go together? The quadruple breakdance world champions Flying Steps and opera director Christoph Hagel will not only prove you wrong. With the fascinating performance of Flying Bach they will even show you that they're a perfect match.

For this extraordinary composition of breakdance and classical music the show did not only win an ECHO Klassik special award. With its unique and innovative visualization of Bach's „Well-tempered Clavier" it breaks the barriers between high and urban culture.
