Queensland ballet at Pilbream

Rhapsody in Motion - Laura Tosar and Patricio Reve - Photography David Kelly.

Head to Pilbeam Theatre, as Queensland Ballet presents 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.

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

This collage of some of the Queensland Ballets most famous works will be performed at the Pilbeam Theatre on Wednesday the 27 March 2024 at 7:30pm.

Tickets: $52 for adults with concession prices available. Ages three – 17 years are $37.

Groups of six plus adults $45 each.

Teacher and School Student Prices also available.
