COME FLY AWAY Comes to DET KGL. Teater

The ballet season kicks off in grand show style with yet more Come Fly Away. Already an audience favourite, Come Fly Away is a dancing declaration of love and a tribute to Frank Sinatra's immortal music.

Dancers from the Royal Danish Ballet kick off their pointe shoes and slip into skirts and high heels. We follow four couples who, during a single evening in an exclusive nightclub, experience the highs and lows of love. The air is charged with seductive dance, sassy romance, sweet hopes and shattered illusions.

Starring Frank Sinatra's velvety voice, Come Fly Away is based on a most-loved catalogue of Sinatra evergreens, including Luck Be a Lady, Summer Wind, Fly Me to the Moon, Witchcraft, That's Life, One for My Baby, My Way and New York, New York. The songs are accompanied by a big band of world-class jazz musicians led by bassist Chris Minh Doky.

The dance steps were composed by Twyla Tharp - one of USA's most highly recognised and versatile choreographers of ballet and modern dance. With breezy elegance, sensuality, creativity and humour, her dance sets out to embody Sinatra's unmatched swing and crooning.

Recommended from the age of 15.

Many thanks to Annie & Otto Johs. Detlefs' Fonde - OJD, whose generous donation has enabled this production of Come Fly Away.

Review: WEST SIDE STORY at Operaen Photo
What did our critic think of WEST SIDE STORY at Operaen? Leonard Bernsteins udødelige klassiker West Side Story har fået nyt liv på operaen i København og dette er gjort med en kærlighed for det oprindelige værk sikkert ført i havn af instruktør Thomas Bendixen, som har gjort at de 2 timer og 20 min, som forestillingen varer bare flyver afsted og ingen af scenerne bliver på noget tidspunkt kedelige og langtrukken, det glider som smurt i olie. Palle Steen Christensen står for scenografien og her må man bare sige, wow det er gennemtænkt og storslået man bliver ved med at finde nye muligheder til at bruge scenografien og det er som en julekalender, der bliver ved med at åbne sig og afslører nye ting. I de to store hovedroller ses som Maria Emilie Groth Christensen og hun har så meget sødme og fanden i voldskhed, at man ikke kan andet en føle med Maria, hun er en drøm af en Maria. Søren Torpegaard Lund er hendes Tony og ud over han har en drøm af en sangstemme, så spiller han også røven ud af bukserne, så man som tilskuere sidder og hepper på Tony frem til det sidste. Forestillingen spilles på dansk og jeg plejer tit at krumme tæer over de danske oversættelser, men det er faktisk lykkedes Det Kongelige Teater at få en oversættelse, hvor hjerte ikke skal rime på smerte og dette er et kæmpe plus og det er med til, at man let kan se bort fra, at det hele tales og synges på dansk. En helt formidabel forestilling som bare skal opleves, før det er for sent.

Shakespeare’s tragic love story about Romeo and Juliet inspired Leonard Bernstein and lyricist Stephen Sondheim to create the story of the two lovebirds, Tony and Maria, involving two rival street gangs in 1950s New York.

Clorinda and Tisbe are maliciously mean towards their stepsister Angelina (Cinderella), who dreams of meeting her one and only, all while covered in ash and confined to her chores in the family kitchen. Charles Perrault’s fairytale collection Mother Goose Tales (1697) was the starting point for 24-year-old Rossini’s libretto. Indeed, these fantastical stories have throughout the years inspired other celebrated composers, including Ravel.

In Icarus, choreographer Pontus Lidberg daringly inserts a queer heart into classic Greek myths. It is the last part of a trilogy, inspired by liminal beings in Greek mythology who are caught in the paradox of being both human and not human, but also neither. Too human to be animals, but not human enough to be accepted as such, they live outside the bounds of society.
