Berlin, May 25, 2021 --- Due to decreasing case rates, the Staatsballett Berlin will take the stage with the FROM BERLIN WITH LOVE IV gala programme in June, featuring pieces from the broad spectrum of its repertoire.

As indoor cultural events will be allowed as soon as case rates decrease, the Staatsballett Berlin plans to stage a brand-new gala, FROM BERLIN WITH LOVE IV, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin on June 5, 6 and 23. The programme offers a variety of dance styles and allows plenty of dancers to showcase the results of their on-going rehearsals.

With the GRAND PAS CLASSIQUE by Victor Gsovsky, Aya Okumura and Daniil Simkin pay tribute to the classical technique whereas Yuria Isaka and Murilo de Oliveira celebrate Bournonville's style with the pas de deux from THE FLOWER FESTIVAL IN GENZANO. Mauro Bigonzetti's DUETTO INOFFENSIVO with principal dancers Elisa Carrillo Cabrera and Yolanda Correa thrives on expressive physical energy. The programme is complemented by Sharon Eyal's successful choreography HALF LIFE which has a group of dancers form an ecstatic unity fuelled by thumping techno beats.

Tickets will go on sale on May 27, 2021 at noon. Should performances be cancelled due to increasing case rates or other constraints by the Berlin Senate, all tickets will be refunded in full.

Tickets are available via our website or via +49 (0)30 20 60 92 630 Tue-Sat 11am-3pm.
