Black Diamond

Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; May 9-11; 75-495kr

The Royal Danish Theater is no stranger to Danish Dance Theater choreographer Tim Rushton – his Love Songs, which was both a jazz concert and a dance performance, was a hit there in 2011 and 2013.

Black Diamond, featuring 16 international dancers, takes place in a futuristic universe. The sensuous, energetic choreography – inspired by light, darkness and the jewel itself – is set to music by violinist Alexander Balanescu and classical composer Philip Glass, as well as famed electronic beatsmith Trentemøller. 

Black Diamond premieres at Vejle Musikteater (May 1-2) before moving to Gamle Scene the next weekend.

For this Mozart adaptation, Chilean director Aniara Amos searched the treasure troves of the Royal Theatre to produce a set compiled of pieces from past productions to complement Scandinavia’s foremost Baroque orchestra.

To mark Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, the Royal Ballet’s youngest members and apprentices will perform a ballet version of one of his best-loved comedies, specially choreographed by artistic director Nikolaj Hübbe.
