CIRCLE OF FRIENDS OF THE VIENNA STATE BALLET

The Vienna State Ballet is one of the most renowned dance companies in the world. On the stages of the Vienna State Opera and the Volksoper Wien, but also on tours abroad or at the Vienna New Year's Concert, it inspires Austrian and international audiences alike. Since 2020/21, under the artistic direction of Martin Schläpfer it has skilfully built a bridge between classical and modern ballet with a broad repertoire and numerous world premieres.

Friends of the Vienna State Ballet help us to carry this success into the future and support young dancers, young choreographers and students of the Ballet Academy. With the possibility of preferential ticket orders and numerous offers to its sponsors, the Circle of Friends also offers the unique opportunity to experience world-class dance at close range.

We cordially invite you to become a part of the exciting future of the Vienna State Ballet. In cooperation with the ballet direction, the Circle of Friends offers you exclusive artist talks, training and rehearsal visits, trips to guest performances by the company and other special events. As a Patron → Silver → Gold → Platinum and as a → Donor, you also enter into direct dialogue with ballet director Martin Schläpfer at exclusive events and support him in his vision for the company to a particularly high degree.

Join the Circle of Friends of the Vienna State Ballet and help us to continue doing what we do best: creating moments that move – in the truest sense of the word! We look forward to you!
