22 September @ 7:00 pm - 23 September @ 9:00 pm AEST
Performing in perfect harmony, Together Live is a delightful mix of classical and contemporary ballet and music by the artists of the Sydney City Youth Ballet (Artistic Director Lucinda Dunn OAM) and the SYO Philharmonic (conducted by Brian Buggy OAM).
The program features highlights and excerpts from classical favourites: The Nutcracker (Tchaikovsky), Le Corsaire (Adolphe Adams) and Les Sylphides (Chopin) plus a short length classical ballet choreographed by Wim Broeckx titled Ode to Mrs P (music by Britten after Rossini). In addition, there will be the world premiere of a work by one of Australia’s most exciting emerging contemporary choreographers Adam Blanch.
Inspired and moved by the music of late Australian composer, Peter Sculthorpe, the score of Earth Cry has been set by Blanch to an evocative and thought provoking contemporary ballet featuring the artists of the Sydney City Youth Ballet and the resonance of a full orchestra provided by the SYO Philharmonic, one of Sydney Youth Orchestras’ most senior orchestras.
