INSPIRING, GRACEFUL DANCE

Celebrating the creativity of leading choreographers from around the world, Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Director Li Cunxin brings together four outstanding, diverse dance works in Elegance.

Poignant and uplifting, Ershter Vals pays tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. Created by US-based choreographer and Principal Dancer Ma Cong, it is performed to music from the Jewish ghettos of World War II, and skillfully weaves classical technique with graceful folk dance influences.

Rachmaninoff’s rich music sets the tone for Ben Stevenson’s award-winning Three Preludes. As two dancers fall in love, the growing intensity of their relationship is eloquently expressed through lyrical, emotive dance.

With virtuosic solos, dazzling pas de deux and ensembles, Greg Horsman’s Verdi Variations pays homage to the elegance and grace of Russian classical ballet. This grand and beautiful piece enchants with gentle humour and thrilling technique.

Completing the program is a new ballet from Brisbane-based dancer and choreographer Gareth Belling. Sweet Beginnings is second in a series of works danced to the inspiring music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, performed by innovative Brisbane chamber ensemble, Collusion.
