Established in 1722, the Royal Danish Ballet served as the artistic home of August Bournonville, the renowned 19th century choreographer. In the nearly 125 years since his death, the company has continued to command attention on the world stage. Now under the artistic direction of Frank Andersen—considered the preeminent Bournonville repetiteur of our time - the company is returning to its roots. An ensemble for the company will perform the Pas de Six and the Tarantella from the Third Act of Bournonville's Napoli, eller Fiskeren og hans (Naples or the Fisherman and his Bride), his most enduring original work.
