About this Event

Come to witness the famous scenes from ballet masterpieces, reenacted for audiences in search of timeless storytelling. This is a tribute to the CLASSICS of ballet, everyone is welcome on this journey across the ballet canon.

A brilliant show, it will bringing us from the classic to contemporary, from West to East, from the iconic to the newly imagined.

This production consists of five parts, combined to capture the universe of emotions, themes and styles inside the evolving art of ballet:

2. Theatrical Ballet

ROMEO AND JULIET was proposed by Shakespeare's scholar to Sergei Prokofiev to transform Shakespeare's plays into Ballet. The choreographers combine dance language and action to tell the romantic story of love, hate and hatred. Our programme revisits the famous Balcony Pas de deux that captures the spontaneity of triumphant love.

And a passionate pas de deux from FANCY FREE, there are some lifting moves, it is test the dancer's technique.

4. Musical Ballet

THE DYING SWAN is a solo dance choreographed from Camille Saint-Saëns's Le Cygne from Le Carnaval des animaux. It fuses the inspirational power of poetry with the graceful beauty of nature.

Inspiration gets dramatised through the choreography in Chopin's

NOCTUME - an original scenario by Terrie Tai that depicts an enthralling meeting between the composer and the Muse. New creative impulses ensue.

A scene from the Chinese ballet RED WOMEN ARMY will be performed to recreate the charismatic energy of camaraderie united by a single purpose. Imagine an army of dancers preparing to conquer the audience with a charm offensive.

For a production dedicated to making ballet easily accessible to all, this is a fitting finale. A tribute to the essentials - individual skill, teamwork, authentic vision - which make the whole of ballet a force for good.
