In January 2014, the Staatsballett Berlin celebrated its 10th anniversary. However, its history and tradition extend far beyond the last ten years. Historically, the company came into being from a merger of the former ballet ensembles of the three Berlin opera houses in 2004. Ever since, the Staatsballett Berlin has become one of the leading ballet companies in the world. As the largest ballet company in Germany and as Berlins only classically trained ballet ensemble, the Staatsballett dancers thrive in the whole variety of the ballet repertory: Firmly rooted in the classical repertory, neoclassical and contemporary pieces are presented as well. The ensemble dances on the stages of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Komische Oper Berlin, and of the Staatsoper im Schiller Theater. Since 2011, the Staatsballett Berlin has its headquarters at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. The operas former paint shop has been transformed into modern ballet studios with excellent training and working conditions. With the start of the 2014/2015 season, the Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato has taken the leadership of the Staatsballett Berlin as its new Artistic Director.
