The Royal Danish Ballet is returning to SoCal for the first time in 15 years with five American premieres in five days. Program 1 features four Nordic choreographers and runs May 24th and 25th while Program 2 performs a comic ballet by August Bournonville. They've been around since 1748 and if you still haven't seen them yet then check them out this week. If they aren't current enough for you, the LA Ballet continues Giselle this week at the Broad Stage.
