Bavarian State Ballet

Theatrical dance has a long tradition in Munich, but it was only the artistic and financial independence from the opera company, which Konstanze Vernon, with the support of the Bavarian State Government, finally achieved in 1988, that made it possible for the former Ballett of the Bavarian State Opera to develop into one of the outstanding companies in the international dance scene. The Bayerische Staatsballett (since its successful appearence in New York in 1993 also known as Bavarian National Ballet) dances into its tenth year with the 1998/99 season, under the direction of Ivan Liska, the successor of Konstanze Vernon.

Looking back on the surprisingly long Ballet history in Munich, you find the same roots as in all the other European capitals: the tradition of court festivities in the Italian and French manner of the 16th and 17th century. Short ballets were performed not only as part of operas, but also as independent works to begin or end a performance. From the beginning of the 19th century legendary names set highlights. Thus Paul and Marie Taglioni danced at the Munich National Theatre in 1825 at the re-opening after one of the then frequent theatre fires.
