Staatsballett Berlin postpones premiere of »Sleeping Beauty« until autumn 2020

Berlin, 11 September 2019 --- Staatsballett Berlin announces that the premiere of Marcia Haydee's »Sleeping Beauty«, originally scheduled for 15 February 2020, is postponed until October of the same year. Instead, the successful productions »Swan Lake« in the choreography by Patrice Bart and »Half Life« by Sharon Eyal, amongst others, will return.

The existing performance dates will be substituted with three different programs. The first is a ballet evening with three newly curated choreographies: William Forsythe's »The Second Detail« will be accompanied by Sharon Eyal's »Half Life«, which has already caused storms of enthusiasm at Komische Oper Berlin in the 2018/2019 season. The third piece is Alexander Ekman's creation »N.N.«, which will premiere on 8 December, 2019 as part of »Ekman | Eyal« at Staatsoper Unter den Linden.

Afterwards, the successful classic »Swan Lake« will take the audience into a tragic, ethereal world of magic with the music of Peter I. Tchaikovsky in the choreography of Patrice Bart after Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa, for seven performances in March and April. Finally, in June, two additional performances of George Balanchine's »Jewels« are scheduled.

Tickets already purchased can be exchanged or refunded starting Monday, 16 September 2019. Further information can be found under
