NEDERLANDS DANS THEATRE - AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE
Experience the sublime beauty and stunning precision of Nederlands Dans Theater, the world's most celebrated dance company.
As part of the Sydney Opera House's commitment to present the very best dance from around the world, the Joan Sutherland Theatre will play host to four works by choreographers Jir Kylian, Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot, which brilliantly display the Nederlands Dans Theaters range and versatility over the last two decades.
SWEET DREAMS delves into the complex world of the human sub-conscience. Surrealistic, erotic and even comic at times, it is an enduring testimony to Kylian's creative genius. NDT is the only company in the world with this extraordinary piece in their repertoire. SARABANDE features six male dancers and is a stunning display of sheer physicality and strength. The use of rich visual effects and the sounds of Bachs lyrical solo violin, make for a totally immersive experience
The award-winning SHOOT THE MOON, with music by Philip Glass, shares glimpses of the love lives of three different couples. Revolving walls with striking black-and-white wallpaper create three separate rooms, each containing its own love story. The door to the other room always seems to be open and through the window a new world beckons.
The humorous SH-BOOM! is a playful ballet set to the popular music of Vera Lynn and Stan Freberg, where men in love try to impress women. The ballet was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Production of the Year.
