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.
