The International Ballet Galas with which Xin Peng Wang opens and closes each season have become an integral part of the cultural landscape of Dortmund. International ballet stars meet in this metropolis of North Rhine-Westphalia to celebrate dance with their audience. The program covers everything from classical ballet to new expressions of dance. Next to principal dancers of prestigious companies, the director is also always interested in inviting young, promising artists to Dortmund.
“A ballet gala,” according to Xin Peng Wang, “is not just a demonstration of achievement, but a pool of creativity and joie de vivre. This is what Ballet Dortmund stands for.”
