Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

Director : Philippe Cohen
" The dancer spends his life in learning, because he finds the process of dance to be, like life, continually in process."
Merce Cunningham
 
Since its creation in 1962, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève has been exploring the various styles of dance from the 20th Century. Today, under Philippe Cohen's dynamic leadership, the company is following the same artistic direction invested in choreographical creation while keeping close the founding principles of dance.

The numerous rewritings of repertoire pieces by some of the most exciting and breakthrough choreographers are part of this prestige. Composed of 22 classically trained dancers, the company is nowadays one of the leading dance companies on the international scene. Its specificity lays within Philippe Cohen's well-suited choices of dancers and in his high standard artistic vision, leading the company and guest choreographers in a clearly defined direction.

Two pieces are created each year for its Genevan season. Then, as a touring company, it's around the world that the company mostly performs its diverse programs.

Season highlights

 

In order to mark this last year under the artistic direction of Philippe Cohen, the 2021-2022 season will feature two of the company's signature productions. First of all, the "magical ballet" Nutcracker, created for the company in 2014 by Jeroen Verbruggen, will be presented from 6 to 16 November 2021 in Geneva. Then, Wagner's ballet Tristan & Isolde, choreographed by Joëlle Bouvier in 2015, will be programmed from 25 to 29 May 2022.
The dancers will also be associated with the Grand Théâtre's lyrical artists on the occasion of the creation of Lully's opera-ballet Atys, staged and choreographed by Angelin Preljocaj.
To complete this season, the company will be touring in Thailand and in Europe from September 2021 to June 2022. It will be programmed in particular at the Maison de la Danse in Lyon, from 26 to 30 January 2022.
