Royal Ballet of Flanders season 2004/2005

3 posts in this topic

The Royal Ballet of Flanders season 2004/2005 is bound to be a special one, as it will see artistic director's Robert Denvers (who has been running the company since 1987) farewell. It is said to be a mirror of his policy.

2004/2005 opens with anything but a mirror, but rather a foretaste of what is due to come in the post-Denvers era: a mixed bill with William Forsythe (the unavoidable "In The Middle"), a Chinese Petrushka (chor. by Xin Peng Wang), and a world creation set on Stravinsky's Violin Concerto by Nicolo Fonte. Furthermore and more appropriate, there are revivals of the recent "La Bayadère" and of "Giselle", considered as two of Denvers' most successful efforts. Finally there is "Inner Glances", grouping for the occasion four of what are deemed the most remarkable creations by house choreographer Danny Rosseel (with the memorable titles "Disregarding Changes", "Forgotten Journey", "Drifting Inwards" and "Seen Within a Square").

In the new season the company will also tour China, Portugal and London.

I wish they were a more classical company. We really lack a good classical company here in Belgium.

Do you happen to know when they will be performing Giselle?
