Sylvia Dress Rehearsal + Pre-Performance Talk

Sylvia Dress Rehearsal + Pre-Performance Talk

The final dress rehearsal for the Australian premiere of The Australian Ballet’s production of Sylvia, Stanton Welch’s twist on a 150 year old love story, featuring a free pre-performance talk with sculptor Linda Klarfeld.

The story of Sylvia – an arrow wielding nymph who scorns love, falls in love, outwits her abductor and wins through to happiness – first became a ballet in Paris over 150 years ago. Stanton Welch’s new production revolves around three intertwining loves combined with the delightful Delibres score and features a striking new design by Jerome Kaplan and Wendell K Harrington, the creative dream team behind The Australian Ballet’s Cinderella.

Join The Friends for a free pre-performance talk from Linda Klarfeld in the Northern Foyer of the Opera House. Linda will talk about the artistic process of producing her ‘Ballet Collection’ bronze sculptures and the technical input she received from David McAllister as two dancers demonstrate the poses.

Tickets on sale from Monday 26 August.
