This spring promises to be an emotional season for the Royal Danish Ballet as the company hosts three farewell performances. However, the first also marks a new beginning when Nikolaj Hübbe assumes the position as the Artistic Director of the company. But first Danish audiences are to celebrate his dancing career with a farewell performance. Then we are to bid farewell to Principal Dancer Kenneth Greve, who this summer will relocate to Helsinki to become the Artistic Director of the Finnish National Ballet. And finally, we are to pay homage to Frank Andersen, who after more than 15 years as Artistic Director of the Royal Danish Ballet bids us farewell for now. 

Nikolaj Hübbe’s farewell performance: La Sylphide and Lost on SLOW on 2 April at 8 pm
Kenneth Greve’s farewell performance: Onegin on 17 May at 8 pm
Frank Andersen’s farewell performance: La Sylphide and Act III of Napoli on 23 May at 8 pm
