Queensland Ballet’s Tutus On Tour offers a wonderful opportunity for audiences across the state to see their state ballet company up close, and to learn more about this beautiful art form.
Audiences will witness first-hand the dancers’ passion, skill and dedication in an engaging program of short works and excerpts from their current repertoire. This wonderful evening of ballet brings together three outstanding dance works.
Poignant and uplifting, Ershter Vals pays tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. Performed to music from Jewish ghettos of World War II, it skilfully weaves classical techniques with graceful folk dance influences.
The award-winning Three Preludes is set to the rich music of Rachmaninoff. As two dancers fall in love, the growing intensity of their relationship is expressed through lyrical, emotive dance.
The dazzling Verdi Variations pay homage to the elegance and grace of Russian classical ballet. This grand and beautiful piece enchants with gentle humour and thrilling technique.
This enticing program of classical and contemporary works is not to be missed.
