Berlin, Dresden, and Prague Sat. 31 March – Tuesday 10 April, 2012 (Easter is 8 April)

3 performances

Berlin State Ballet: Romeo & Juliet (Cranko), Gala-style mixed program (excerpts, pas de deux)

Dresden Semperoper Ballet: Coppelia (Balanchine)

day trip to Prague

This is the latest addition to my 2011-12 offerings. Everyone who has been to Berlin raves about it.
If you want to see what the ballet company, now under artistic director Vladimir Malakhov, looks like, here's a trailer for their Onegin:

and here's another one with William Forsythe's very cool Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude:


Dresden has been magnificently restored, and the ballet company there, under their Canadian artistic director Aaron Watkin, has been getting stellar reviews. Here is a clip about their Coppelia (voiceover is in German, but visuals are good):


We would stay 7 nights in Berlin and 3 in Dresden, with a day trip to beautiful Prague, which is only 2 hours from Dresden. Don't worry if you don't speak German; both cities get a lot of tourists, and I do speak German.

This trip would have to be finalized in October, so I need to get planning soon if I know there is sufficient interest. Please get in touch if you are interested.
