Season 2016/2017

Welcome to our "Russian" season!
For many years The Hamburg Ballet has concerned itself with the great tradition of this profoundly cultural nation. In the past, we have created and presented new interpretations of traditional and modern classical ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Glazunov and Tcherepnin as well as works created in close cooperation with the Russian-American composer Lera Auerbach.

During the current season, we will focus on ballets based on masterpieces of Russian literature, most prominently with the world premiere of Anna Karenina after Leo Tolstoy and the revival of The Seagull based on Anton Chekhov's drama. Nijinsky, a choreographic portrait of the Polish-Russian dancer, one of the greatest artists in the history of ballet, will be our first major revival. In addition my choreography to Gustav Mahler's masterpiece "The Song of the Earth" will have its premiere during this season. We invite you to discover the comprehensive panorama of 19 different productions. Half of them will form the 43rd Hamburg Ballet-Days in July.

I look very much forward to seeing you at the Hamburg State Opera!

NIJINSKY - Revival

This ballet is based on the life and legend of one of the most exceptional artists of our century: Vaslav Nijinsky. As a dancer, Nijinsky experienced popularity, publicity and fame comparable only to that of Rudolf Nurejev during his times. It was as a choreographer however that Nijinsky established a new direction - a dance vision pointing the way towards modern choreography.

The character and destiny of Nijinsky inspired John Neumeier once before to create a short ballet: "Vaslav" in 1979. Neumeier celebrates Nijinsky and dedicates the full-length ballet to this extraordinary artist and mysterious human being.

National Youth Ballet

Germany's first ever National Youth Ballet has been founded at the beginning of the 2011/2012 theatre season. The company consists of eight professional dancers between the ages of 18 to 23, and has begun work at its new home at the Ballettzentrum Hamburg – John Neumeier. With its own repertoire comprising mainly works by young choreographers, the group will predominantly dance in new spaces – not theatres, but schools, museums, nursing homes and even prisons; spaces in which dance does not usually attract much interest. The National Youth Ballet aims to demonstrate that dance has a social relevance creating a spirit of community and a sense of unity.
