Danish Design


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 take an extra look at the furniture on display.

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

The standard is high, and the homogeneity is frighteningly precise … fascinating over and above what’s usual

A fitting and charming example of a modern Arne Jacobsen portrait … Alban Lendorf is world class

Choreographer René Vinther gets the maximum out of Lendorf, who twirls and jumps in peak condition

Total ballet right in your solar plexus

The award-winning set designer Benjamin La Cour’s magic on stage … [Alban Lendorf] is installed as eye-catching center in his capacity of being a true piece of Danish design himself

It is a great scoop that the theatre got to come home on a visit, as he is also perfection

With brilliant support from the lighting designer Sune Andre Verdier, the sound designer Jonas Rose Høeg and the visuals of JA Film, Benjamin La Cour’s set design becomes modern, living theatre with respect to the legends whose drawings mark the entire visual expression of the performance. In addition, Mike Sheridan and Jesper Mechlenburg’s inciting electronica is a significant contribution to the quality of the performance
