Cinderella


Cinderella is the second ballet in The Fairytale Season from The Australian Ballet.

As Cinderella (Lana Jones) works to support her stepmother (Amy Harris) and sisters (Ingrd Gow and Eloise Fryer), she watches as they prepare for the magnificent ball being held by the Prince of the land (Daniel Gaudiello), knowing that they will not let her attend. A beloved and well known rags to riches story continues with the Fairy Godmother (Nicola Curry) working her magic to make this truly glamorous and romantic story some to life.

Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderalla will sweep you off your feet with original music by Sergei Prokofiev and Costume and Set Design Jérome Kaplan. As “effervescent and fun as festive champagne” (Daily Telegraph)

The Tempest

Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in this groundbreaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.

On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.

 

In a unique partnership with Intel, the production will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Roméo et Juliette by Gounod

When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. Bartlett Sher’s new production has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score.

Il Trovatore

International superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic.

Il Trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder.

This new atmospheric and poetic staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman. The famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi’s exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.
