Presentation of the Royal Danish Ballet’ s repertoire for the 2017- 18 season.
April 26, 2017
Nikolaj Hübbe presented a new season which will feature two brand new big style ballets, one a creation of British choreographer Liam Scarlett, named “The Queen of Spades”, based on the novel by Pushkin and music by Tchaikovsky.
The other new big scale production is “Raymonda”, which has never been on the repertoire of the Royal Danish Ballet. Nikolaj Hübbe will stage the ballet himself. The production will be designed by Richard Hudson, who also designed Nikolaj Hübbe’s production of “La Bayadére”. Like the former cooperation, the production will travel in time to the 17th century France and Spain.
Nikolaj Hübbe will also be on the rooster with a one of performance of his, likewise time travelled version of “Napoli”. His and Silja Schandorff´s non-medieval “Giselle” will be up for a short run. Nikolaj Hübbe will also create a new, so far untitled ballet as part of the Dance2go program. And his and Silja Schandorff’s version of “Swan Lake” is up for a third run.
