The Masters Series is a breathtaking triple bill featuring masterpieces from ballet’s best – the late George Balanchine, the acclaimed Jiři Kylián and current ‘disruptor’ of the ballet world, Trey McIntyre.
George Balanchine’s Serenade is famous as the first ballet he choreographed in America and perhaps his most loved. A stirring and sweeping work set to Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, it was first conceived for a group of fledging ballet dancers as an exercise in stagecraft.
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 his world-premiere work The Shadows Behind Us. Created especially for Queensland Ballet, this distinctive piece will demonstrate the excellence of choreographer and dancers alike.
Queensland Ballet’s The Masters Series will provide something for everyone, showcasing the immense talents of the dancers and choreographers involved – do yourself a favour and pick up tickets before they sell out.
