The Pantomime Theatre
July 15 2016
Since former RDB star Peter Bo Bendixen took over the small historic Pantomime Theatre in the TIVOLI Gardens, he has proved to be the most ambitious ballet master in the company´s century long history.
On top of the daily Comedia del Arte pantomimes, the company now produces Bournonville ballets, including Bendixen’s own production of “La Sylphide”, works by moderns choreographers like Tim Rushton, Sebastian Kloborg and Tim Matiakis. There is a biannual production of Bendixen’s “Nutcracker” in the larger concert hall. This season, former Bolshoi, Royal Danish Ballet and San Francisco Ballet star, Yuri Possokhov has made a version of “Cinderella” to a score by Danish and international popstar Oh Land, who started her career as a ballet child at The RDB school.
