Semperoper Ballet

The baroque city has always been a centre of dance, with a permanent ballet company existing since the time of Carl Maria von Weber. After an early artistic blossoming in the 1920s, many great choreographies have subsequently been performed on the Semperoper stage under ballet directors Tom Schilling, Harald Wandtke and Vladimir Derevianko. The Canadian Aaron S. Watkin, ballet director since 2006, has brought a unique artistic vision to Semperoper Ballett. His aim is to dissolve of borders between classical and contemporary styles of dance, thereby realising highly imaginative and innovative choreographies. With a new and exciting repertoire based on traditional narrative ballets, modern dance and with first-class soloists from around the world, Aaron S. Watkin is also making waves on the international ballet scene.
