Verdensballett on Sylt July 11th 2019

Weltballett unter freiem Himmel – Verdensballett 2019

„Enjoy a world-class ballet performance in a Frisian garden and in a relaxing atmosphere.“
Claas-Erik Johannsen

The “Verdensballett“ proves that high culture can be relaxed and enjoyed with ease. The ensemble consists of some of the world’s best solo dancers, e.g. Marcelino Sambé of the Royal Ballet London, Marian Walter and Iana Salenko of the Staatsballett Berlin, or Steven McRae, soloist at the Royal Ballet London.

Every summer season, for more than ten years now, exceptional talents join together in order to perform as “Verdensballett“ open air and in a relaxed atmosphere in selected places. On the programme: classical and modern ballet pieces, scenes and arias of famous operas, as well as violin music. The dancers will be accompanied by opera singers, the violin player Niklas Walentin and the pianist Alexander McKenzie.

Four years ago, the “Verdensballett“, initiated by the Danish tenor Jens-Christian Wandt, performed together with the Bundesjugendballett from Hamburg for the first time out of Denmark on the terrains of the Benen-Diken-Hof. It was an incomparable and magical evening, which will now take place for the fourth time on Thursday, July 11th, 2019.
