Any ballet in Europe (not UK) on between 18 and 22 July?


Recommended Posts

This is a bit of a long shot but, as my children will be away on a residential music course then, I was wondering whether it would be possible to squeeze in a ballet weekend (one performance would be enough) in Europe for my husband and myself. I know that most companies have "broken up" for the summer but I thought that there may be a gala on somewhere. Osipova is dancing in Swan Lake at La Scala on 18 July but that doesn't particularly interest me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Aileen,

 

Alina Cojocaru is leading a group to Denmark for some outdoor performances:

The RDB also sometimes do outdoor performances in the summer.  I've just had a quick look at the website and haven't noticed anything yet. 

 

Many places in France and Italy have outdoor festivals that include dance in the summer - it may be worthwhile contacting the relevant tourist agencies.

 

There is something on at La Fenice on 21st July:  http://www.teatrolafenice.it/site/index.php?pag=21&spettacolo=22012

Aileen,  I don't know if this info is too late for your plans.

 

There is usually an event called "Les Etes de la Dance" in Paris each summer - I saw National Ballet of Cuba under its auspices a few years ago.  I couldn't remember the name of the event but I have just seen a tweet that reminded me.  Here is the link to this year's event:
