Don Quixote

The Hamburg Ballet celebrates the forthcoming 200th anniversary of the legendary dancer and choreographer Marius Petipa with the premiere of "Don Quixote". In this truly classical ballet, he seamlessly combined highly virtuosic pas de deux with Spanish local colour and a love story in which a young couple stands up against social conventions. |  More...


The Little Mermaid

A dramatic tale set in two contrasting worlds: The simple, underwater life of the ocean creatures and the flamboyant lifestyle of humans. The central figure of the mermaid travels through both worlds, enduring torment because of her committed love for the prince – but through her own strength in the end – transcends. The ballet underlines parallels to the fairy tale in the biography of Hans Christian Andersen. |  More...
