The 2002-2003 season of the Munich Ballet can be seen on the following page:


It will include:
-"Raymonda" (Ray Barra after Petipa)
-"The taming of the shrew" (John Cranko)
-"Manon" (Kenneth MacMillan)
-"Don Quijote" (Ray Barra after Petipa)
-a mixed bill with "Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet" (George Balanchine), "In the night" (Jerome Robbins), "After Dark" (Jacopo Godani)
-"Onegin" (John Cranko)
-"Swan Lake" (Ray Barra after Petipa)
-a Jiri Kylian triple bill (Svadebka, Sechs Tanze, Bella Figura)
-"A midsummer night's dream" (John Neumeier)
-a new work by John Neumeier on some music by Ravel
-a double bill with Saburo Teshigawara's "Rite of spring" and William Forsythe's "Artifact II"

It is very interesting to notice that the Munich Ballet does not have series of a single ballet for a given period, as the POB or the Royal Ballet: all the works of the season's repertory are danced in alternance for a large period of time (for example "Raymonda" will be danced from July 2, 2002 to May 9, 2003).

As most of you probably know already, Lucia Lacarra and Cyril Pierre of the SFB will be joining the MB as principals. Also, Barbara Kohoutkova (some of you may remember her from the 1996 NYICB in which she won the gold medal), principal with The Finnish National Ballet, will be joining as a First Soloist.
