The Royal Danish Ballet – verve, power and passion

sylfiden

The Royal Danish Ballet is one of Denmark’s most celebrated institutions, which like the contemporary Danish film industry enjoys a great following worldwide. Much of the company’s reputation rests on the style and oeuvre of legendary Danish ballet master August Bournonville (1805-79), whose storytelling ballets and romantic choreography have become international repertoire fixtures.

 

But the Royal Danish Ballet is about much more than Bournonville. With its international corps de ballet, its broad classical repertoire and contemporary choreographic innovation, the Royal Danish Ballet is a all-embracing company.
