Ballet Under the Stars is back for its 24th edition! Established by Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) in 1995 as Singapore’s most loved and iconic outdoor dance event at the Fort Canning Green, there will be a weekend of contemporary works from July 5-7, and another weekend of classical ballets from July 12-14, 2019. The first weekend features two works – Linea Adora by Timothy Harbour and Evening Voices by Tim Rushton. Both are perfect examples of what the dancers of Singapore Dance Theatre inspire in the choreographic voices of remarkably talented and creative dance makers. Complimenting this is SYNC by Nils Christe, from the 30th anniversary gala in 2018; this ballet is unlike any other piece in our repertoire.
The second weekend is a celebration of absolute classical ballets. It begins with the haunting Act II of Giselle, followed by several divertissements from Swan Lake, including the famous White Swan pas de deux from Act II and Act III’s Black Swan pas de deux. The end of the evening is Act II of The Nutcracker, called the “Land of the Sweets”. In it, there is everything from the Dewdrop Fairy in the waltz of the flowers to the Sugar Plum Fairy and her cavalier in the grand pas de deux.
Tickets: SG$40 (Free Seating). Available through SISTIC.
