A tribute to the ballet
The Royal Ballet will present two of the most acclaimed choreographers - William Forsythe and David Dawson. With its choreographic form, these artists created a modern identity for classical ballet. Artifact Suite & The Grey Area has previously been set up at the Royal Opera in 2014 and in 2006.

Artifact suite
Artifact Suite 2004 originated in the full-length ballet Artifact. The work as a whole was created by choreographer William Forsythe's Frankfurt Ballet in 1984, where he was artistic director from 1984 to 2004. Forsythe is one of today's most important choreographers. With Artifact Suite offers Forsythe audience on a generous playfulness and brilliant composition in its homage to classical ballet.

The Grey Area
The Grey Area moves the audience beyond time and space with his abstract and emotionally charged choreography. A modern ballet with a focus on classical ballet dynamics, aesthetics and weightlessness and where the dancers' personal interpretation is central. David Dawson is one of the world's most innovative choreographers working in classical ballet today. He is loved by critics and audiences alike.

Venue
 
Royal Swedish Opera
 

Royal Swedish Opera (Swedish: Kungliga Operan) is Sweden's national stage for opera and ballet.

The building is located in the center of Sweden's capital Stockholm in the borough of Norrmalm, on the eastern side of Gustav Adolfs torg across from the former Arvfurstens Palats, now Ministry for Foreign Affairs. It lies on the north side of the Norrström river and is connected to the Royal Palace through the Norrbro bridge.

Famous singers who originally were (or still are) part of the opera's ensemble are Jussi Björling, Gösta Winbergh, Nicolai Gedda, Peter Mattei, Jenny Lind, Birgit Nilsson, Elisabeth Söderström, Anne Sofie von Otter, Katarina Dalayman and Nina Stemme.

The orchestra of the Royal Swedish Opera, the Royal Swedish Orchestra, Kungliga Hovkapellet, dates back to 1526. Royal housekeeping accounts from 1526 mention twelve musicians including wind players and a timpanist but no string players. Consequently, the Royal Swedish Orchestra is one of the oldest orchestras in Europe.

The Royal Swedish Ballet, Kungliga Baletten, was founded by Gustav III of Sweden in 1773.
