#A treasure trove of ballet masterpieces from the vault.

Join us in a theatre near you as we present four glittering works from the vault in a balletic feast for the senses. From an emotive story of love to a collage of tutus and Tchaikovsky music, to one of the most celebrated excerpts in the ballet world, this production features rich stories that will captivate lovers of music and dance.  

The evocative Three Preludes, choreographed by Ben Stevenson OBE, is a tale of two dancers falling in love. Comprising only a ballet barre, a piano, and the duo, this sweeping and romantic story is exemplified by compelling choreography and graceful, synchronised movement to sublime music by Sergei Rachmaninoff.  

Marius Petipa’s Le Corsaire pas de deux is one of the most famed excerpts in ballet history. Transporting audiences to a world of swash-buckling pirates and exotic landscapes, the elegant excerpt requires technical brilliance and precise partnering. Premiering in Paris in 1856, the full-length ballet was inspired by the 1814 poem The Corsair by Lord Byron. 

Greg Horsman’s beautiful A Rhapsody in Motion premiered in 2022 to audience and critical acclaim and explores the fascinating relationship between the dancer and the captivating music of Rachmaninoff. This production features the second and third movement of this work. 

Tchaikovsky Mash evokes the classical era of dance in a compilation of short works featuring the music from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and more. The piece is a collage of influences and a mix of his renowned music; familiar, and yet, perhaps not.    

Don’t miss this season of extraordinary works touring across Brisbane and regional Queensland.  

Production performed to recorded music.
