Vienna State Opera

Vienna State Ballet

Thanks to director Manuel Legris, a former Danseur Etoile of the Paris Opera Ballet, the Vienna State Ballet has succeeded in establishing itself internationally as a first-class company. Five premieres and ten repertoire works are on the program at the Vienna State Opera and Volksoper in the 2016/17 season.

Highlights at the Vienna State Opera

  • The ballet evening Balanchine | Liang | Proietto celebrates its premiere on 1 November 2016.
  • Choreographies by John Neumeier to music by Nikolai Tcherepnin and Igor Stravinsky will be shown for the first time in Le Pavillon d'Armide | Le Sacre on 19 February 2017.
  • For the season finale, the annual Nureyev Gala presents highlights from the international world of ballet on 29 June 2017.
  • Seven programs from the repertoire will also be danced, including the full-length narrative ballets La Fille Mal Gardée, Onegin and Swan Lake.

Highlights at the Volksoper

  • A major dance premiere is Cendrillon on 13 November 2016. In this adaptation, the Cinderella story transforms into the difficult journey of a dance star to the peak of her profession.
  • Three young choreographers from the company reinterpret classics of the Ballets Russes. The Firebird | Petrushka | Movements to Stravinsky opens at the Volksoper on 28 April 2017.
