Ballet in Berlin enchants the senses

Classical ballet and modern dance performances are aimed at a mixed audience. The opera ballet of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Staatsballett Berlin offer the grand stage for what is probably the most athletic and yet most graceful dance style in the classical scene. Inspiring choices include Peter Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker and Igor Stravinsky's Firebird. Mostly invisible but always present, strings, wind instruments, and piano accompany the graceful dancers on stage and provide an unforgettable ballet experience in the German capital.
