The Israel Ballet

The Israel Ballet is the only company in Israel performing the great classical and neo-classical ballets of the international repertoire. The company was founded in 1967 by Berta Yampolsky and Hillel Markman who have continued to be its Artistic Directors until the present day.
The Israel Ballet has a rich and varied repertoire ranging from the great classical and modern full length ballets like “The Nutcracker”, “The Sleeping Beauty”, “Cinderella”, “Onegin”, “Romeo and Juliet”, “Don Quixote” and “Giselle” to works by choreographers such as Christian Spuck, Krzysztof Pastor, Rudi van Danzig, Jan Lincolns and Lar Lubovitch.
The greatest pride of The Israel Ballet lies in the original works made for the company by its founder and Artistic Director. Until today Berta Yampolsky has created more than 30 ballets for the company including new productions of the classical ballets “The Nutcracker” and “The Sleeping Beauty”. As well as her classical productions there are the many fresh choreographic creations that she has generated and with which she has won great critical acclaim. To name just a few – “Untitled”, “Ecstasy”, “Two by Two and Everyone”, Written in the Sand”, “Gurrelieder”, “Optimus” and “Harmonium”.
Today, The Israel Ballet is a company of dancers from all over the world, among them native Israelis, new immigrants from the former Soviet Union and guests who have been selected by audition.
