Ballet at the Grønnegårds Theatre

New Copenhagen Event - Ballet under the linden trees at the Grønnegårds Theatre

There is a chance to see some of the Royal Ballet's best dancers over the summertime. Summer tourists and Copenahagen locals can see the Royal Ballet dance under the linden trees at the Grønnegårds Theatre during the month of July. The performances are the result of a new cooperation between the Grønnegårds Theatre and the Royal Theatre, an fullfills a great wish for the Royal Theatre to offer performances in the summer.

Theatre chief Michael Christiansen:

"The public can be happy that it is now a possibility to see the Royal Theatre's artists all year, including the summer. And it's not just by chance that the performances will be at the Grønnegårds Theatre. Grønnegårds Theatre has a long made a name for itself as a central player in summer theatre and it therefore a great pleasure that it has been possible to enter into a collaboration with the theatre."

Peter Bo Bendixen is the artistic director of the performances at the Grønnegårds Theatre. He has a great deal of experience in touring with the Royal Ballet, where he has for many years travelled around the word iwth the Principals and Soloist of the Roal Danish Ballet.

"We have arranged a program which fits into the Grønnegårds Theatre's setting with its picnic baskets and summer humor. The program has great artistic quality and appeals directly to the public. It is summer, so it is great feelings which take pride of place, when the Royal Ballet is a guest at the Royal Theatre for the first time."

The Program for the evenings include five great works from the Royal Ballet's repertoire:

-- 1963: Yesterday (1998) is John Neumeier's tribute to Copenhagen. With the music of the Beatles, Neumeier recreates the mood from his first meeting with Copenhagen and the Royal Ballet in 1963.

-- Tim Rushton has created more works for the Royal Ballet - the latest being 'Requiem' which won a Reumert award for best performance. 'Nomade' (2000) was created for an outdoor stage, specifically for Ballet at the Kastellet. Nomads and ballet have in common the fact that they are always in movement - in both a figurative and concrete sense - and it is this relationship that Rushton uses the theme in his work.

-- 'Ønsket' (1998) by Stanton Welch is a pas de deux where the major feelings come in play. The work describes a common human experience, a farewell between two people who are drifiting apart from eachother and so therefore must go their separate ways.

-- The evening in the green ends with a festival on the stage. The third act of August Bournonville's 'Napoli' (1842) is a fesitival of joyfulness, amusement and enthusiasm, and is perhaps more than anything else, synonymous with the Royal Ballet fame in foreign countries.






Ballet i Grønnegårds Teatret

9.06.2006|Pressemeddelelse

Ny københavner-begivenhed: Ballet under lindetræerne i Grønnegårds Teatret

Så er der mulighed for at holde sommerferie med nogle af Den Kongelige Ballets bedste dansere. Sommerglade turister og københavnere kan i juli måned opleve Den Kongelige Ballet danse under lindetræerne i Grønnegårds Teatret. Konceptet er et resultat af et nyt samarbejde mellem Grønnegårds Teatret og Det Kongelige Teater og imødekommer et bredt ønske om, at Det Kongelige Teater også tilbyder forestillinger i sommerferien.

Teaterchef Michael Christiansen :
”Publikum kan godt begynde at glæde sig over, at det nu er muligt at opleve Det Kongelige Teaters kunstnere hele året - også i sommerferien. Og at det lige er i Grønnegårds Teatret er ikke nogen tilfældighed. Grønnegårds Teatret har længe markeret sig som en central aktør på den danske sommerscene, og det er derfor meget glædeligt, at det har været muligt at indgå et samarbejde med teatret.”

Det er Peter Bo Bendixen , der er kunstnerisk leder for forestillingerne i Grønnegårds Teatret. Han har en del erfaring fra turnelivet med Den Kongelige Ballet, hvor han de sidste mange år har rejst rundt i hele verden med solister og solodansere fra Den Kongelige Ballet:

”Vi har sammensat et program, som passer rigtigt godt ind i Grønnegårds Teatret rammer med picnickurv og sommerhumør. Programmet har høj kunstnerisk kvalitet og appellerer direkte til publikum. Det er jo sommer, og derfor er det de store følelser, der er i højsædet, når Den Kongelige Ballet for første gang gæster Grønnegårds Teatret.”



Programmet for aftenen byder på fire stærke værker fra Den Kongelige Ballets repertoire:

· 1963: Yesterday (1998) er John Neumeiers hyldest til København. Til musik af The Beatles genskaber Neumeier stemningen fra sit første møde med København og Den Kongelige Ballet i 1963.

· Tim Rushton har skabt flere værker til Den Kongelige Ballet – senest Requiem, der vandt en Reumert for årets bedste danseforestilling. Nomade (2000) er skabt til en udendørs scene, nemlig til Ballet i Kastellet. Nomader og ballet har det til fælles, at de altid er i bevægelse – i både overført og konkret forstand - og det er dette slægtskab Rushton tematiserer i sit værk.

· Ønsket (1998) af Stanton Welch er en pas de deux, hvor de store følelser kommer i spil. Værket skildrer en almen menneskelig oplevelse, nemlig afskeden mellem to mennesker, der er gledet fra hinanden, og som derfor må gå hver til sit.

· Aftenen i det grønne afsluttes med en fest på scenen. Tredje akt af August Bournonvilles Napoli (1842) er et festfyrværkeri af glæde, morskab og begejstring og er måske mere end noget andet synonym med Den Kongelige Ballets berømmelse i udlandet.
