“On the Front Row”
A documentary series on the Royal Danish Ballet
September 27, 2017
Over the last seven weeks, Danish National Television has shown a seven part series on the RDB dancers. It is not unusual for the national TV to produce behind the stages documentaries. I have quite a selection on DVD of what has been done over the years. However, the scale of this project is bigger than anything done before.
In many ways, the series is a continuation of a two part series done during Nikolaj Hübbe’s first year as ballet master. The new series follow six Danish dancers through the spring season. Actually, five of the six dancers was also taking part in the two part series, which followed the aspirant classes they attended.
