Danish Design

First Night: 17 August 2019


Treat yourself with an intense shot of Danish Design with summer ballet, design exhibition and a design video

You enter unique Danish design the very moment you enter Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Bellevue Teatret. During the Summer Ballet, Danish design classics are on display at the theatre. Try out the furniture. Every item is auctioned on Lauritz.com.

The auditorium is open when you arrive. On a large screen, archive films from Arne Jacobsen’s life are shown. See the film from Jacobsen’s original theatre seats from 1936.

When the bell rings, it is summer ballet time. The guest star Alban Lendorf is on stage throughout the performance of 45 minutes. This is your chance to experience an international ballet star. Six modern dancers accompany Alban Lendorf. Together, they dance to deliver the ultimate Danish Design.

After the show, the theatre is open, so that you can have another look on the classics on display. Or maybe you want to hang out in front of the theatre or take a walk on the beach – or see the archive film in the theatre once more.

On select days, you can join Alban Lendorf at after talks.
