Notes and Editorial Reviews

"It's an image that goes straight to your heart: Geraldine Chaplin, the great Charlie's daughter, storms onstage, takes Mario Schröder in her arms and simply doesn't let go. A Prototypical scene for this just one and a half hour evening, marking the beginning of a new era in Leipzig." - Leipziger Volkszeitung

"Schröder's ballet, ‘Chaplin’ is a grand, marvelous dream of a man in search of himself, in search of a language to deliver a direct message, for the indirect ones, he finds body language and thus his tone of truth." - Tanznetz
