The Royal Theatre
The company's web site, with a detailed English section (also in Danish, of course).
Photos, mostly from the 1992 festival (at this writing) as well as information on the ballets and other articles.
Photos by David Amzallag
The RDB's official photographer in the late '80s and early '90s, these are mostly from that period, although there are some recent ones as well.
Bournonville in Hell
Not for the squeamish, this series of three articles by Alexandra Tomalonis originally published in DanceView in 1998 (a shorter version, in two parts, appeared in DanceNow shortly afterwards) offers a history of Bournonville stagings as well as a commentary on the political changes and problems form 1992 through 1998 in some detail.

Also, of historical interest perhaps, this is the link to the photo gallery for my biography of http://www.danceview.org/Kronstam/kronstamp1a.html
