We also answer further questions in our FAQ or you can contact our visitor communications department directly.
We look forward to your visit!
New Premiere on 20 December: PASSAGEN
In December, Passagen another triple bill celebrates its premiere. The aspring German choreographer Philippe Kratz presents his new creation to get to become, which is also his first work for the Bayerisches Staatsballett. Moreover, Russell Maliphant's Broken Fall accompanied by the music by Barry Adamson returns after a longterm break. The third production will be announced soon. All three choreographies deal with the topic of passages and celebrate the power and movement of new beginnings.
New Premiere on 3 November: PARADIGMA
Paradigma unites three choreographies by Sharon Eyal (Bedroom Folk), Wayne McGregor (Sunyata) and Liam Scarlett (With a Chance of Rain). Just as every paradigma is characterized by its structure, so is each of the three choreographies, where the forces within the choreographies fight the dominant structure and from that gain their creative potential. Both Bedroom Folk and With a Chance of Rain are new works that are presented for the first time at the Bayerischen Staatsballett.
Update 29 Oct. 20: Because of the latest decision of the gouvernment, all performances are cancelled in November. We are already looking for alternative dates.
Both Swan Lake and Giselle will be preformed in an adapted version. The heart and content of the works remain untouched. What is changed is the amount of people on stage, their entrances and exits and the distance between them. For more information see our blog with Head Ballet Master Thomas Mayr (only available in German).
Cancellations and Postponements
The performances of Paradigma in November are cancelled.
The performances of Christopher Wheeldon's Cinderella are cancelled in the season 2020/2021. We are already looking for new dates in the following season.
The performances of John Neumeier's The Nutcracker cannot take place.
The performances of George Balanchine's Jewels cannot take place.
