Rameau’s has often been called “the greatest ballet composer of his time” and now these two important Australian companies brign it into the 21st century with a performance where dancers are joined onstage by musician.
The Canberra Theatre can hardly conceal its satisfaction at getting this show here, saying “Sydney Dance Company is one of only a few nationally and internationally regarded companies with a solid and consistent history of bringing their work to Canberra.” You could say exactly the same of the ACO.
Canberra Theatre photographer, Greer Versteeg, gives us a glimpse of what is to come in her photos, taken onstage today.
