Royal Danish Ballet season 2019/2020

Recommended Posts

Next season's repertoire for the RDB was announced this morning:

 

Queen of Spades (Scarlett)

Blixen (new full length by Gregory Dean)

Nutcracker (Balanchine)

Ballet de Luxe - Act 3 of Raymonda/Ballo della Regina-/August 2.0 ("a respectful nod to August  Bournonville, bringing the master's choreography into the 21st century" - arranged by Dinna Bjørn and Nikolaj Hubbe)

Mahler's 3rd Symphony (Neumeier)

Come fly away (Twyla Tharp)

A Folk Tale (Bournonville)

... plus a number of smaller scale works and collaborations

 

Interesting that Gregory Dean gets another big opportunity straight after this season's Cinderella - and from the publicity photo, another big leading role for Kizzy Matiakis!

 

Full programme

Interesting too that SFB are taking their R&J to Copenhagen to play in that lovely opera house for four performances.

This year we'll celebrate the 100th anniversary of the rejoining of Southern Jutland and Denmark. On the 10th of January in the Royal theatre  there was a Gala performance dedicated to that event where it was possible to see the new pdd of John Neumeier to Beethoven's music  " Persistent persuasion" , created especially for this event, danced by our leading ballerina Ida Praetorius and Alexandr Trusch from Hamburg ballet (approx.10th minute of the recording) as well as Pas de sept, from Bournonville's "Folkesagn" , danced by Caroline Baldwin, Kizzi Matiakis, Holly Jean Dorger, Emma Riis-Kofoed, Gregory Dean, Jon Axel Fransson and Jonathan Chmelensky, all them, but Emma are leading dancers of the company and Emma is considered to be a new rising star ( approx. 59th minute of the recording). Unfortunately I can't say, how long will be this kept on the Danish tv site:
