Vienna State Ballet

The 2020/21 ballet season promises to be an exciting one because the Vienna State Ballet is now under the direction of the Swiss choreographer and ballet director Martin Schläpfer, and appears at the Vienna State Opera and at the Volksoper. His works are intense and virtuoso, and include the chance to see two premiere performances: Gustav Mahler's 4th Symphony and Dmitri Shostakovich's 15th Symphony.

Traditional & Modern at the State Opera and Volksoper

The masters of American neoclassical, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, are still among the permanent features of the Vienna program, as is the Dutchman Hans van Manen.

For the first time, works by Alexei Ratmansky and the two major American modern dance artists Paul Taylor and Mark Morris can be experienced with the State Ballet in 2020/21. And Dance Modernism, whose home is the Nederlands Dans Theater, thrills with works by Sol León & Paul Lightfoot, Jiří Kylián and, of course, Hans van Manens.

Still in the repertoire are the ensemble's major productions: at the State Opera, "Jewels" as well as the narrative ballets "La Fille mal gardée", "Giselle” and "Swan Lake”. The popular family show "Peter Pan" as well as "Coppélia" are on the program again at the Volksoper.
