As Sweden’s national theatre for ballet, the Royal Swedish Ballet offers both classical ballet and contemporary dance. With one foot rooted in tradition and the other stepping into the future, the company has a loyal and diverse audience.
The Royal Swedish Ballet’s history began in 1773, when King Gustav III founded the Swedish Opera.
Under the directorship of Nicolas Le Riche, the Royal Swedish Ballet is today Sweden’s largest ballet company, with 68 full-time ballet dancers, consisting of principals, soloists and the corps de ballet. Members of the Royal Swedish Ballet dance in over 100 productions a year, most of which take place on the Opera’s main stage.
