Nikolaj Hübbe begins to really make his mark on the company....

One noticeable difference is that the season starts later (end of September) and runs into June. The company will tour in Denmark in August, but it appears that they are trying to take advantage of the long early days of summer and perhaps more early summer tourists.

The BIG new production of the year will be a brand new Napoli. According to the program, it will be set in the 1950s, with Bournonville credited for the first and third act choreography and Nikolaj Hübbe for the second. Sorella Englund will be assisting Hübbe. However, it's one heck of a season - four big full lengths including a new Napoli and Neumeier's wonderful Midsummer Night's Dream, and a host of triple bills that range from Balanchine to Ashton to Robbins to Limon.

More to come when the Royal Theatre website works again....

For non Danish speaking balletomanes, M/K refers to male/female, with one evening highlighting ballerinas, the next danseurs.
