A throwback to the golden age. The Australian Ballet presents the George Balanchine-choreographed Symphony in C, a frenetic tutu-ballet that harnesses classic Hollywood charm with all the modern flourishes. The works’ dancers are challenged physically and stylistically, but the movement remains an effortless accompaniment to the iconic George Bizet score.
The performance will be accompanied by five additional short works – ‘divertissements’ – Richard House’s From Silence, Alice Topp’s Little Atlas, Victor Gsovsky’s Grand pas classique, Pas de trois from Imaginary Masque by Stephen Baynes and Agrippina Vaganova’s Diana and Actéon.
Symphony in C will be showing at Arts Centre Melbourne from August 24 to September 2.
