NAPOLI - Premiere

Since 1842 a story of simple fishermen in Italy captivates the Danish audience. The romantic ballet "Napoli" by August Bournonville is considered a classic in Denmark. Lloyd Riggins, principal dancer and ballet master with the HAMBURG BALLETT and previously a principal dancer of the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, will stage Bournonvilles signature work for a new production in Hamburg and will take on the choreographic challenge of the lost second act.

YOUNG CHOREOGRAPHERS

Make sure you get your tickets for the "young choreographers" in 2015!
The sale starts on November 21st at 10.00 AM. Tickets for 25€ are available at the ticket office of the Hamburg State Opera, by phone 040/35 68 68 and online. Please note that there are no numbered seats.

"We as dancers try to communicate with the audience through our dancing. For some of us though, it is not enough to speak the words someone has already written, and so we must create our own songs, poems, stories and sometimes even our language which take the form of steps and choreographies spoken through our bodies", says the coordinator of the "young choreographers" Braulio Alvarez.

Since 1974, members of the ensemble of the HAMBURG BALLET regularly get the chance to work as choreographers. In March 2015, 17 dancers take over the artistic direction of the performances. The "young choreographers" cooperate with musicians of the "Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg" so that there will be also live music at the stage of the opera stabile.

TOUR TO VENICE

Current information on our tour to Venice
For the grand finale of the season, the HAMBURG BALLET travels to Venice in July 2015. The company will be performing John Neumeier's "Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler" – almost exactly 40 years after the premiere of the ballet in Hamburg and the Italian premiere at Piazza San Marco in Venice in June 1975. In addition to the previously announced performances on July 16th and 17th, the company will give an additional performance on July 15th. The new venue for the shows is the Teatro La Fenice, the famous and perhaps most beautiful opera house in Italy. Tickets are on sale now.

The School

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.
