The Pointe Dances.

150 Years of Ballet at the Wiener Staatsoper

May 16, 2019 – January 13, 2020

The second dance exhibition curated by Andrea Amort focuses on the essence of classical ballet at the long established opera house on the Ringstrasse. It addresses the artistic highlights and the significance of its ballet company and its changeful history in the 20th century. Further emphasis is devoted to the legislating of its legendary ballet master
Josef Hassreiter, to guest dancer Rudolf Nurejew who influenced the company over many years, as well as to its acting artistic director
Manuel Legris. The show is being organised in cooperation with the
Wiener Staatsballett.
