Overview

A breathtaking triple bill featuring masterpieces from ballet’s best

Legendary choreographer George Balanchine’s iconic Serenade is a jewel of ballet repertoire. Exhilarating and highly emotive, this formative piece has enthralled audiences for decades.

Jiří Kylián’s Soldier’s Mass explores the horrors of war through the eyes of young soldiers. Kylián’s masterful choreography offers a powerful commentary on the devastation of war that will move audiences.

Acclaimed choreographer Trey McIntyre investigates the depths of human nature and the qualities that bridge the gaps between us in a world premiere work, The Shadows Behind Us. Created for our Company, this distinctive piece will demonstrate the excellence of choreographer and dancers alike.
