Bournonville in Sweden

4 posts in this topic

The Royal Swedish Ballet has just given the first performances of a revival/reconstruction of Bournonville's vaudeville ballet Ponte Molle 150 years after its creation.

 

Some background in a piece from Pointe magazine here , including a video showing some brief extracts.

 

There's also a longer video here showing the BOurnonville team - Frank Andersen, Dinna Bjorn and Eva Kloborg - discussing their work, with the Swedish ballerina Natalie Nordquist showing some of the details of the style.

 

Anyone seen it? I'd love to hear about it.

Isn't this the ballet we saw a chunk of during the World Ballet Day segment in Sweden?

There's just something about Bournonville that is so distinctive!
