A Classical Celebration
With the Queensland Symphony Orchestra
31 October & 2 November, 2012
Rich with tradition, classical ballet embodies ethereal beauty, disciplined technique and heartfelt emotion. In a joyous celebration of this revered art of dance, Queensland Ballet presents excerpts from some of the most loved works in the classical and romantic repertoire, including The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Le Corsaire, Romeo & Juliet and La Sylphide. Let the glorious sounds of famous and familiar music envelope you, and escape into a world more beautiful... A Classical Celebration will be a simply unforgettable ballet experience.
Join us to honour Artistic Director François Klaus at a Gala Celebration, immediately following the opening performance of A Classical Celebration.

My comment is to applaud Artistic Director, François Klaus, for the tremendous development of Queensland Ballet under his guidance and leadership. It has been an enormous contribution.
He certainly has built and shaped a very high standard of technical and artistic expertise in our dancers. He is leaving the company in great shape for the the extremely capable hands of Li Cunxin.
Bravo! Once again I have been delighted by the quality of a Queensland Ballet production. Fresh choreography with excellent execution. The drama, pathos and emotion portrayed by our dancers is quite exceptional and I am continually impressed at the ongoing improvement of the dancers. How much better can you be!
I believe we are going to really miss Francois. His development of our company is outstanding! Thank you and I wish you all the best Francois.
I look forward to next season! Regards, Deborah
