|Open Company Class with Li Cunxin|
Shakespeare’s whimsical masterpiece has been transformed into glorious dance thanks to acclaimed choreographer Liam Scarlett. Together with Mendelssohn’s evocative music, Scarlett’s witty choreography brings the magical, humorous and timeless story of love, jealousy and mistaken identities to life.
Appointed Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Associate in 2016, Liam Scarlett is in demand worldwide for his exceptional choreographic talent. He has created ballets for The Royal Ballet (where he is Artist in Residence), and commissions for international companies such as New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and English National Ballet. After it charmed Brisbane audiences in 2016, we are thrilled to perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Melbourne.
After selected performances at Her Majesty's, a panel of creative artists and dancers discusses aspects of the ballet you’ve just seen.
Before selected performances at Her Majesty's Theatre, you can watch our world-class company warm up and prepare for their performance in an open company class led by one of our Artistic team.
Informative, keepsake programs are distributed free-of-charge at all performances. You can also view the program online before the performance.
