The repertoire for the 2007-2008 season has been announced on the RDB site (but I've seen only in Danish so far, the corresponding English page is empty):


The only two Bournonville works will be the same as those of this season: "Napoli", and "La Syphide" (which will be paired with a new work by Jorma Elo).

If I understand correctly, the other full-length works will be Flemming Flindt's "Carole Mathilde", Alicia Alonso's production of "Don Quixote", John Cranko's "Onegin" and a production of "The Nutcracker" by Kenneth Greve and Peter Langdal (is this a new production ?). There will be a Jiri Kylian program with six (!) works, and some double or triple bills (Uotinen/ Cherkaoui, Lindell/ Bauer/ Wilkinson/ Baecher, Naharin/ Duato/ Wheeldon), and a program for children by Tim Rushton and Anne Marie Vessel Schlüter.

That sounds exciting. Especially Alicia Alonso's production of Don Q. And works by Kylian and Duato.
And of course Onegin is a ballet to love always!!!! :shake:

...a production of "The Nutcracker" by Kenneth Greve and Peter Langdal (is this a new production ?).

Yes - Kenneth Greve is doing the choreography and it will be directed by Peter Langdal, who is well known for his theatre and opera work. For the last 5 (?) years the company has been doing a Nutcracker by Ratmansky in the Tivoli theatre at Christmas - now they are 'bringing it home' to the Royal Theatre.

Alonso's Don Q, by the way, will be done in the same sets and costumes - by Jens-Jacob Worsaae - already used by the RDB for their last 2 productions.
