A Gala Evening with West Australian Ballet features shorts works and excerpts from both classical and contemporary dance.
The evening starts with one of classical ballet’s best known pas de deux from The Nutcracker.
A short but explosive work Les Indomptes is choreographed by Frenchmen Claude Brumachon and is a high-energy physical work danced by two men, premiered in 1992.
A piece that celebrates the ‘father of modern ballet’ George Balanchine is the nimble and virtuosic Tarantella.
The Le Corsaire pas de deux sees dashing pirate Conrad reunite with his love Medora, sure to be a highlight of the evening.
The finale will be the newly created work from award-winning Australian choreographer Garry Stewart, which premiered at WA Ballet’s In-Synch: Ballet at the Quarry in February.
Reincarnation is an energetic contemporary work that explores what happens after death, with inspiration taken from classical ballets such as Giselle and Swan Lake.
WA Ballet is holding a series of workshops and master classes for students, as well as a free warm-up class before the performance.
