Queensland Ballet is sixty years this year and what better way to celebrate this milestone than to celebrate the birthday with a gala performance. This is an event not to be missed this March, by any ballet and dance enthusiasts. Over the years, Queensland Ballet has evolved, by turning the traditional art form into a modern, vibrant, creative representation of contemporary Australian society and Ballet.
In 1960, Charles Lisner's motivation behind creating the Queensland Ballet Company was to give ballet to the Queensland public, no matter where you resided be it city or rural, regional areas. Today, Queensland Ballet continues to practice Lisner's ethos and will be on show at the gala performance, along with the incredibly talented dancers. Brisbane audiences will be taken on a journey from the company's first Artistic Director, Charles Lisner's OBE adaptation of Chopin pas de deux (1965) through to the current Artistic Director, Li Cunxin's AO Études (1948).
