There will always be ballet feuds… Going back to the Original Ballets Russes and The Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. Here are some of the current match ups….
Royal Ballet vs. English National Ballet… The Tea and Crumpets War
New York City Ballet vs. American Ballet Theatre (old rivalry but a goodie)
The Australian Ballet vs. Queensland Ballet… the fight down under
Houston Ballet vs. Ballet Austin vs. Texas Ballet Theatre… The Texas Threesome
Miami City Ballet vs. Orlando Ballet, younger ballet companies hashing it out.
Stuttgart vs. Hamburg, the German showdown
Bolshoi vs Mariinsky (old rivalry but a goodie)
National Ballet of Canada vs Royal Winnipeg… Canadian Syrup Fight
In bold I have decided who I like more… haha (insert your comments below)
There are many more but these are some that I enjoy watching as they promote people, change up their repertory, and start the social media wars. What is great is that we have all these options, that each company brings something new, and has created numerous jobs for their areas.
