Shanghai Ballet  The Lady of the Camellias

#Queensland Ballet proudly presents an exclusive to Brisbane season by the acclaimed Shanghai Ballet.

In this compelling production of the beloved romantic classic, The Lady of the Camellias, Shanghai Ballet’s highly accomplished dancers will bring the tragic story of love and sacrifice to life through lyrical dance.

Based on the landmark 1848 novel by Alexandre Dumas fils that inspired Verdi’s opera La Traviata and the Oscar-winning musical Moulin Rouge!, this dramatic ballet follows one of the most beautiful and brazen courtesans in all of Paris as she leads a glittering yet tragic life.

This season will be performed to recorded music.
