Royal Danish Ballet

Monday, June 13, 2011

Nikolaj Hubbe, artistic director of the Royal Danish Ballet, and principal dancers Alban Lendorf and Amy Watson talk about the company and its first performances in New York since 1988. Founded in 1748, the Royal Danish Ballet is the world’s third oldest ballet company, but it does not live in the past—it performs dances from the neoclassical works by George Balanchine to Danish choreographers to contemporary choreographers such as John Neumeier, Maurice Béjart and Jiri Kylián. The Royal Danish Ballet will present six evenings of its work June 14-19 at David H. Koch Theater.

Guests:

Nikolaj Hubbe, Alban Lendorf and Amy Watson
News, weather, Radiolab, Brian Lehrer and more.

I saw the same Carlsberg ad with the tag line "Probably the best beer in the world" in Croatia. I thought it was just a bad translation of the original copy. I snapped a photo and showed it to all my friends who work in advertising here in NY and they all got a good laugh. It's a "lower your expectations" society for sure.
