Some links for those interested in the Royal Danish Ballet:


The Royal Theatre

The company's web site, with a detailed English section (also in Danish, of course).


Bournonville

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. The afterward is a review of the 2000 Bournonville Week originally published in Dance Magazine.

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

Why, thank you!!! Do you mean the Hell pieces? Of all the things I've written, those are the dearest to me. I'll always be very grateful to David Leonard for printing them in Dance Now so that more people would see them. Glad you did!

For those interested in coaching, and how a ballet is put together, Part 3 has more of that and less of the history and politics.

I've put up another interview from the print version of DanceView on the DanceView site -- this one was also published, in its entirety, by Dance Now.

It's an interview I did with Nikolaj Hübbe three years ago, his perceptions of why he didn't get the directorship of the Royal Danish Ballet, which had been much expected

This site is in Danish, but may be useful to some. It's a wonderful database on important Danish women. This link is to the page for solodanseriinder.
