DEADLY LOVE

In the end, death will take them and yet, love will have prevailed – this is true for many great  ballets; eerily beautiful while desperately sad. They all have to die: Romeo and Juliet, Prince Siegfried, and Giselle. But as everybody knows, love conquers death and can transcend it. Powerful emotions create an unforgettable ballet experience!

SIGNATURES

The artistic expressions of ballet are manifold. The  current artistic signatures range from the neoclassic extension created by Benjamin Millepied and the  eruptive convulsions of Marco Goecke to the individual choreographic expression of Hofesh Shechter. You haven´t seen ballet like this before!

FAVOURITE PIECES

When the curtain opens and the costumes and stage decorations sparkle and glitter in the spotlights, the eyes of the audience start to shine as well. It is still alive: grand glamour on an even grander stage. Whether stardust or diamond magic, no effort is too great for us to create that magical ballet experience.

CHEERS TO OUR FRIENDS

The ballet world is one big family. This is why there is a fine tradition family members visiting each other. In the 2017/2018 season we invite Polina Semionova and friends to a gala. The Staatsballett Berlin is looking forward to welcoming the Balllets de Monte-Carlo.
