Season 2016/2017

Welcome to our "Russian" season!
For many years The Hamburg Ballet has concerned itself with the great tradition of this profoundly cultural nation. In the past, we have created and presented new interpretations of traditional and modern classical ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Glazunov and Tcherepnin as well as works created in close cooperation with the Russian-American composer Lera Auerbach.

During the current season, we will focus on ballets based on masterpieces of Russian literature, most prominently with the world premiere of Anna Karenina after Leo Tolstoy and the revival of The Seagull based on Anton Chekhov's drama. Nijinsky, a choreographic portrait of the Polish-Russian dancer, one of the greatest artists in the history of ballet, will be our first major revival. In addition my choreography to Gustav Mahler's masterpiece "The Song of the Earth" will have its premiere during this season. We invite you to discover the comprehensive panorama of 19 different productions. Half of them will form the 43rd Hamburg Ballet-Days in July.

I look very much forward to seeing you at the Hamburg State Opera!

NAPOLI - Premiere

Since 1842 a story of simple fishermen in Italy captivates the Danish audience. The romantic ballet "Napoli" by August Bournonville is considered a classic in Denmark. Lloyd Riggins, principal dancer and ballet master with the Hamburg Ballet and previously a principal dancer of the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, staged Bournonvilles signature work for a new production in Hamburg and took on the choreographic challenge of the lost second act.

TATIANA – Repertory

On the 29th of June 2014 John Neumeier's ballet "Tatiana" celebrated its world premiere at the Hamburg State Opera. For this new work, the Artistic Director and Chief Choreographer of THE HAMBURG BALLET approached Alexander Pushkin's "Eugene Onegin" from a new perspective. "As I read Pushkin's verse novel, I realised that I was fascinated by the role of Tatiana Larina. She became more profound and more interesting with every paragraph, every page that I read. And so I had the idea to explore her role and her perspective in more detail through my ballet" says John Neumeier. In a speech given in June 1880, Fyodor Dostoevsky noted that "Tatyana is different. She is a strong character, strongly standing on her own ground. She is deeper than Onyegin and certainly wiser than he. With a noble instinct she divines where and what is truth".

The music for Neumeier's ballet has been composed by Lera Auerbach – commissioned by THE HAMBURG BALLET and the Hamburg State Opera, together with the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre Moscow. The Russian-American composer Auerbach was previously commissioned to write the score for John Neumeier's Ballet "The Little Mermaid" and also provided the music for his work "Préludes CV".

National Youth Ballet

Germany's first ever National Youth Ballet has been founded at the beginning of the 2011/2012 theatre season. The company consists of eight professional dancers between the ages of 18 to 23, and has begun work at its new home at the Ballettzentrum Hamburg – John Neumeier. With its own repertoire comprising mainly works by young choreographers, the group will predominantly dance in new spaces – not theatres, but schools, museums, nursing homes and even prisons; spaces in which dance does not usually attract much interest. The National Youth Ballet aims to demonstrate that dance has a social relevance creating a spirit of community and a sense of unity.
