FRENCH MASTERS CELEBRATED IN BYRON BALLET’S TRIPLE BILL The Byron Ballet Company is primarily a youth ballet company providing performance opportunities for passionate dancers. Casts include professional guests, advanced dancers plus mature experienced dancers and mentors. Byron Ballet Company Director, Yvonne Hall, says the Company returns to the Byron Theatre with an eclectic triple bill that will delight all lovers of dance. The program includes Matisse, La Danse, an excerpt from the famous ballet, Carmen and Stravinsky’s iconoclastic Rite of Spring. ‘Special guests include dynamic dancer Nicole Corea from New York, along with the brilliant athleticism of guest male dancers, including regular Principal Dancer, Michael Braun. Ms Hall says Matisse, La Danse was conceived by local artist Vianney Pinion, who was inspired by the master artist Matisse and his famous painting The Dance. ‘Vianney collaborated with the talented dancers and choreographers of the Company to create a stunning piece of work that reflects the vision of Matisse and how this painting came into being.’ ‘The ballet also involves local live musicians and a local soprano who will bring extra magic to the stage.’ Ms Hall says one of the highlights of the performance is a passionate love duet from the famous ballet Carmen. ‘This dance will follow La Danse with that magnetic Spanish style, unfolding to the sensual music of George Bizet.’ ‘Finally, the program will build to a cathartic climax with the suspense and beauty of The Rite of Spring. ‘The story echoes back to times of pagan Earth rituals and the cycles of life, with modern interpretations also symbolising society’s need for the scapegoat.’ Join Byron Ballet Company as they make a tribute to these masters and take you on an unforgettable journey of suspense and sensual beauty. July 23, 24 and 25. Tickets on sale at www.byrontheatre.com.au.
