About Royal Danish Ballet
Revered as the world’s third oldest ballet company, the Royal Danish Ballet returns to Jacob’s Pillow for the first time in over a decade to open Festival 2018 in the Ted Shawn Theatre.
Praised as “a masterclass in style” (The Guardian), leading principals and soloists perform a program of pas de deux, imbued with a rich Danish-Pillow history which dates back to company’s U.S. debut of the first group of soloists in 1955.
While the distinctive repertoire of Danish choreographer August Bournonville remains a cornerstone for The Royal Danish Ballet, in his ten years as Artistic Director, Nikolaj Hübbe has brought the company to an impressive technical level which masters a wide range of modern and classical ballets.
