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!

OTHELLO – Repertory

Othello, a Blackmoor Captain, by talking of his Prowess and Feats of War, makes Desdemona a Senator's Daught er to be in love with him; and to be married to him, without her Parents knowledge; And having preferred Cassio, to be his Lieutenant, (a place which his Ensign Jago sued for) Jago in revenge, works the Moor into a Jealousy that Cassio Cuckolds him: which he effects by stealing and conveying a certain Handkerchief, which had, at the Wedding, been by the Moor presented to his Bride. Hereupon, Othello and Jago plot the Deaths of Desdemona and Cassio, Othello Murders her, and soon after is convinced of her Innocence – he kills himself.
Thomas Rymer, 1693

ROMEO AND JULIET – Repertory

"An expressive ensemble that fully understands the different figures, precise group dances make the staging a showpiece for the quality of the Hamburg company. It is wonderful to see how John Neumeier leads new generations of dancers through his repertoire. This is Shakespeare, Prokofiev, Neumeier and the company at its best."

The School

The School of THE HAMBURG BALLET, established in 1978, trains young people from all over the world for a professional dance career. The syllabus gives priority to all aspects of classical-academic dance, but the syllabus includes as well courses dedicated to the techniques of modern and folk dance.

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.
