FOLLOWING on from their outstanding performances of A Festival of Russian Ballet, the Imperial Russian Ballet Company return to Australia with A Russian Triple Bill. This stunning programme performed in three awe-inspiring acts is proudly presented by Russian Ballet Ltd.
A Russian Triple Bill will be presented for the first time to Australian audiences. This impressive and diverse programme consists of the fairy tale spectacular of Princess Aurora’s wedding from Sleeping Beauty in Act 1, the romantic Les Sylphides in Act 2 and the electrifying Carmen in Act 3.
Act one is from Sleeping Beauty. A holiday is declared for the wedding of Princess Aurora & Prince Desire. This is a joyous and happy ballet which will be loved by all.
Act two is from Le Sylphide, a short ballet in one act about a young man who while walking at night encounters a group of sylphs or magical woman.
Act three is from Carmen, the story of a flirtatious and seductive gypsy woman whose love affair with two men ends in tragedy.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company will be at Frankston Arts Centre on Wednesday 19 September. Bookings: (03) 9784 1060 or online at thefac.com.au
