The 2015/2016 season at the Bavarian State Ballet

5 marzo, 2015

The 2015/2016 season at the Bavarian State Ballet – moved by passion!

During today’s press conference, Artistic Director Ivan Liška announced the projects for the 2015/2016 season at Bayerisches Staatsballett. With three major premières, an extended Ballet Festival Week augmented by significant works from the past year’s repertoire, the last season under Liška’s directorship stands under the motto moved by passion!  

New productions

The December première 2015 encompasses three works ranging from the classical to the neo classical to contemporary times. Aszure Barton created her first work (Concert for Violin and Orchestra) for the Bayerisches Staatsballett in 2014. For this first première of the season, Barton will create a piece for an all-male ensemble as a counterpoint to the female dominated Sinfonie in C set. Sinfonie in C celebrated its Munich premiere in 1975 and has since involved many generations of dancers and audiences, making every performance shine in a fresh new light. The piece combines the mastery of a young genius, sixteen year old Georges Bizet, and the maturity of Georges Balanchine. Last but not least, Jerome Robbins’ In the Night entices with a trip to the internal landscape of emotion.

For the first time ever, one of the later pieces by Pina Bausch is given to a different company. For the Children of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow kicks off the Ballet Festival Week 2016. The piece combines all elements that made up the unparalleled quality of Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater. Created in 2002 in Wuppertal during the latest creative period of Bausch, it is a compelling piece that oozes charm. This work marks the pinnacle of the season and a worthy end for the overarching theme DANCE COUNTRY GERMANY which spanned several seasons.

Simone Sandroni, long-time guest choreographer in Munich and incoming ballet director in Bielefeld starting with the 2015/2016 season, will once again create for the Bavarian State Ballet and Ivan Liška. In his piece, very young members of the company will share the stage with the ‘older’ dancers from the main company. Iggy Pop composed a song reflecting on human beings as wanderers in time. The lyrics will be a point of departure, inspiring the choreography. The Passenger will be premièred during the Ballet Festival Week at the Prinzregententheater.


Le Corsaire is the love story of pirate Conrad and the Greek Medora. Reconstructed by Ivan Liška in 2007, it marks the first revival performance of a classic this season.

Terence Kohler’s Once Upon An Ever After and Léonide Massines Choreartium will be featured in one evening. Aside from the technical finesse and the colorful production designs, the symphonic pleasure takes center stage – one evening combines Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique and Brahms’ 4th Symphony.

John Neumeier’s masterful version of the ballet of all ballets, Illusions – like Swan Lake presents the counterpoint to historical Petipa. His interpretation of King Ludwig II’s story about the tragical descend of one man’s psyche, returns to Munich in February 2016.

Ballet Festival Weeks 2016

In the spring of 2016, the long-established Ballet Festival Week will be extended past its usual two week long run.

Special highlights are the two premiere performances For the Children of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and The Passenger as well as the Terpsichore-Gala XII, for which the company together with international guests, looks back at eighteen seasons under the leadership of Ivan Liška.

Of course, other beloved pieces from repertoire will return, such as the matinee, featuring Munich’s youngest talents from the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung and Ballet Academy.


The kids- and youth program of the Bavarian State Ballet under the leadership of Bettina Wagner-Bergelt is ever present during the season, with its innovative curriculum and various program formats.

Besides the fourth edition of the model-project Heinrich dances, the Bayerisches Staatsballett in collaboration with the Dance in Schools e.V. and Access to Dance will once again host the Think Big! #4 festival. The international performance festival for young audiences will take place from October 4 to 11, 2015.
