Vita

Roman Novitzky was born in Bratislava, Slowakia, and received his dance training at the Ballet Conservatory in Bratislava from which he graduated in 2003. For six years he danced with the National Ballet of Slovakia before joining the Stuttgart Ballet in 2009. In 2011/12 he was promoted to Demi-Soloist, in 2013/14 to Soloist and in September 2015 to Principal Dancer.

His repertory includes leading roles in ballets by John Cranko including the title role in Onegin, Paris and Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet, Lucentio and Hortensio in The Taming of the Shrew and the Officer in The Lady and the Fool. In addition he has danced leading role in Kenneth MacMillan’s Song of the Earth and Requiem, Gurn in La Sylphide (Peter Schaufuss after Bournonville), des Grieux in The Lady of the Camellias (John Neumeier), José Antonio in Don Quixote (Maximiliano Guerra) und The Master in Krabat (Demis Volpi). His repertory also includes works by George Balanchine, Maurice Béjart, Glen Tetley, Hans van Manen, Jiří Kylián, Wayne McGregor and Jorma Elo. Internationally acclaimed choreographers such as Mauro Bigonzetti, Edward Clug, Marco Goecke, Christian Spuck und Demis Volpi have created roles especially for him.

In 2012 Roman Novitzky choreographed his first ballet for the renowned Noverre-Society’s Young Choreographers evening. His second work for the Noverre-Society in 2013 – Are You as Big as Me? – was so successful that it was taken into the Stuttgart Ballet repertory immediately where it has become a cult hit. Most recently it was danced by Daniil Simkin, Leonid Sarafanov and Daniel Camargo at the “Princes of Ballet” Gala in Tokyo for which Novitzky also choreographed the finale. In 2014 and 2016, Novitzky created two more works for the Noverre-Society – Cello contra bass, has also been taken into the repertory of the Stuttgart Ballet. In 2018 he created with great success his first piece for the Stuttgart Ballet: Under the Surface.

In addition, Roman Novitzky is also one of the official photographers of the Stuttgart Ballet. His photos have been published in international dance magazines, books, programs and German newspapers, as well as for ad campaigns for the Stuttgart Ballet. In the summer of 2018 his first book The dancing view. Roman Novitzky’s Stuttgart Ballet was published by Edition Cantz and is also for sale in our theatre shop.
