This will be their first tour to Australia. The ballet programme consists of a total of eleven performances. After the successful tour to China earlier this year, the trip to Australia will be THE HAMBURG BALLET’s second big international tour in 2012.

Shortly before Easter, THE HAMBURG BALLET performs Saint Matthew Passion at Forum Leverkusen and at Essen Philharmonic Hall. In Essen, John Neumeier also presents a “Ballett-Werkstatt“ (Ballet workshop) on his ballet based on Johann Sebastian Bach’s oratory.

In early May, the company will travel to Moscow: They will perform two of John Neumeier’s signature pieces at the Stanislavsky and Nemirowich-Danchenko Music Theatre: Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler and Nijinsky.

Shortly before the opening of the 2012/2013 season THE HAMBURG BALLET will embark on a voyage to Australia: From August 26 to September 5 they will dance at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane. There will be three performances of Nijinsky as well as eight performances of John Neumeier’s Shakespeare ballet A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
