Our New Year's Eve gala at the Deutsche Oper Berlin had to be cancelled unfortunately. However, this won't stop the Staatsballett Berlin dancers, presenting repertory highlights from classical to contemporary, from passionate to divine. Two dancers, Arshak Ghalumyan and Ross Martinson, who already presented choreographies as part of the contemporary project LAB_WORKS COVID_19, are featured once more, showcasing works either created for themselves or other dancers of the company. With the desire to spread the nostalgic joy associated with Peter I. Tschaikovsky's famous music, the programme also features THE NUTCRACKER pas de deux (2nd act) as well as the virtuosity of the final pas de deux from Tchaikovsky's SWAN LAKE.
Through dynamic and intimate imagery, you'll be witness to a close-up performance the audience rarely gets to see in the vast auditorium. The New Year's edition of our gala series FROM BERLIN WITH LOVE will stream from January 1, 2021 at 6pm CET.
