BALLET CLUB WIENER STAATSBALLETT

The art of ballet is considered to be an important part of our heritage, but it sets fascinating impulses for our present too. People of all ages and all nations are touched directly by ballet. 

For more than two decades, the Ballet Club has been supporting the Wiener Staatsballett through non-material and financial sponsorship of young dancers, young choreographers and students of the Ballet Academy. With numerous offers to its patrons, the Ballet Club is also an important initiative in the field of cultural exchange and networking.

The appointment of the new management – Dr. Bogdan Roščić as Director of the Wiener Staatsoper and Martin Schläpfer as Director and Chief Choreographer of the Wiener Staatsballett – also signifies a further development for the Ballet Club: While previously it was run as a private cultural initiative, starting the 2020/21 season the new management will bring the Ballet Club with its projects and goals under the umbrella of the Wiener Staatsballett.

As a patron of the Ballet Club Wiener Staatsballett, you will have the opportunity to experience world-class dance at close quarters. In cooperation with the Ballet Direction, the Ballet Club offers you exclusive artist talks, training and rehearsal visits, trips to guest performances of the company and other special events. You will enter into a personal dialogue with Martin Schläpfer and his team and be informed more quickly and comprehensively about the activities of the Wiener Staatsballett. You will get to know the members of the company, become part of a strong network and, as multipliers, support the recognition and importance of the Wiener Staatsballett beyond the borders of Vienna and Austria with your understanding and interest in dance.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we cordially invite you to accompany the activities of the Ballet Club Wiener Staatsballett as a patron!

We are looking forward to your registration! Please use the membership form.
