The Ballet Municipal de Lima is Peru's classical ballet company, based in the capital city of Lima.

History[edit]

The Ballet Municipal de Lima was founded in 1983 by Lucy Telge de Linder, who remains the current Director of the company. Although the company is a small one by international standards (48 dancers during the 2011-2012 season), it is a professional company that performs regularly in Lima, as well as touring throughout Latin America.[1]

The company's repertoire includes classical ballet standards such as Giselle, Swan Lake, La Sylphide, Coppelia, Romeo and Juliet, La Fille Mal Gardee, Le Corsaire, and several others.[2]
