THE SAND CHURCH, SKAGEN
Everyone had an unforgettable evening, and as someone said after the show, on the way to their car: ”amazing how the World Ballet can keep exceeding themselves after nine years”.
This is what the local newspaper of Skagen wrote, regarding last years show in front of the church tower, where some of the most talented ballet dancers and other stars have performed since 2008. In the meantime, the summer event has only grown bigger by the years – and 2017 is no exception!
NEW ARTISTS MARK THIS YEAR’S ANNIVERSARY
This summer The World Ballet will celebrate its 10-year anniversary on Monday the 17th of July at 7:30 PM by Den Tilsandede Kirke (The Sandy Church) in Skagen. The World Ballet welcomes you to a pompous show that presents snippets from well known elements from both the classic and the modern display.
The artistic framework surrounding the show is led by Danish tenor and presenter Jens-Christian Wandt, whose presence guarantees a coherent cultural event where anyone – newcomer as well as connaisseur – can keep up. We are delighted to be presenting new artists as well as some old favorites on this year’s summer tour, and we are even opening a bigger seating chart in the magical surroundings of Skagen, where The World Ballet made its first pirouette 10 years ago.
Some of the world’s most talented ballet dancers have been performing next to the church’s extraordinary surroundings over the years. Summer 2017 world class opera singers and musicians will again join ballet dancers on stage uniting nature with culture – back where it all started in 2008.
Verdensballetten addresses everyone who wants a different artistic experience in the open air – not just the experienced audience. The show is approximately two hours including a break.
We look forward to a magical night in 2017 to celebrate our 10 years of existence.
