The Australian Ballet presents Sylvia This ballet will on at 31st August to 10th September 2019.
The story of Sylvia is an arrow-wielding nymph who scorns love, falls in love, outwits her abductor and wins through to happiness. This first became a ballet in Paris over 150 years ago. The Delibes score, which had a great review from Tchaikovsky, has since then become the world's leading choreographers, including Ivanov, Ashton, Balanchine and Neumeier.
Stanton Welch's new production of Sylvia will have its Australian premiere and Welch, who performed his versions of La Bayadere and Romeo and Juliet on The Australian Ballet's stage, is a resident choreographer of the company. He is the artistic director of the Houston Ballet and one of the art performances great storytellers.
This is a full-length Sylvia, which goes around three intertwining love stories and features a new design by Jerome Kaplan and Wendell K Harrington (projections), the creative dream team behind The Australian Ballet's Cinderella.
Welch's Sylvia requires the lead ballerinas to learn sword-fighting, requires three strong superheroines, all the passion and humour of Greek myth, dancing and one of ballet's most scores.
Coppelia This will be on the 10th August at 7.30 pm in Riverlinks Westside, Shepparton and you can buy your tickets here.
Ballet's most charming comedy will be live on stage: The Australian Ballet's Regional Tour presents Coppelia for one day only!
Swanilda and Franz are in love … until a lovely stranger, the daughter of the magician Dr Coppelius, appears in town. But she is not what she seems, and Swanilda has to rescue Franz from the magician's sinister shop. This will all be done with the help of some fancy footwork!
This is all about laughter and love, dancing and vivid colour.
This will be on 5th and 6th October at the National Theatre Drama School, 20 Carlisle Street, St Kilda. You can get your tickets at this link.
The Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty, has come alive! It is now available for you to watch live on stage. This production portrays the same beloved fairy tale with the grand classical ballet featuring Tchaikovsky's music. The sets and costumes are magnificent.
