Celebrate with Queensland Ballet as we present an exciting retrospective telling of our evolving story over 60 years. The 60th Anniversary Gala honours a vibrant history of dance that showcases exciting excerpts from five world-class productions. Watch as we come alive on stage, performed by our world-class dancers and glitter in the coming of age of this extraordinary company.
The production pays tribute to each of Queensland Ballet’s five Artistic Directors: Charles Lisner OBE, Harry Haythorne, Harold Collins MBE, François Klaus and Li Cunxin AO. Step into a wealth of dance production created and performed since 1960, including an excerpt from Chopin Pas de Deux as choreographed by founding Artistic Director Charles Lisner OBE; and a sassy, evocative piece from François Klaus’s Cloudland, that creatively revived the fading narrative of Queensland’s old dance hall with graceful ballroom dresses and heady jive. While Collins’ The Lady of Camellias tells of the unrequited love.
In 1983 with Jacqui Caroll as resident-choreographer for Queensland Ballet saw her translate Carl Orff's' cantata. Inspired by earthy and erotic medieval poetry, in Carmina Burana, the 60th Anniversary Gala will once again invite audiences to engage in the vitality of light, sound, colour and movement in the rowdy ‘Taberna’.
Demonstrating Queensland Ballet’s depth in this retrospective season includes the delicate and poignant finale from The Little Mermaid, as choreographed by François Klaus. The suite of works concludes with Harald Lander’s masterful homage to classical ballet, Études, showcasing an evolved and mature Company under current Artistic Director, Li Cunxin AO.
