The Royal Ballet

The Royal Ballet’s The Winter’s Tale and Woolf Works has its Australian première at the Lyric Theatre exclusively for the 2017 QPAC International Series season from 29 June to 9 July 2017.

The Winter’s Tale, choreographed by The Royal Ballet’s Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, is the first full length adaptation of a Shakespeare play by the company since Kenneth MacMillan’s 1965 production of Romeo and Juliet and is Wheeldon’s eighth work choreographed for the company.

Wayne McGregor’s full-length ballet, Woolf Works, which secured the 2016 Olivier Award for best new dance production, is inspired by three of Virginia Woolf’s landmark novels; Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves, as well as her autobiographical writings.  Wayne McGregor celebrates a decade as Resident Choreographer of The Royal Ballet.

 

QPAC Chief Executive John Kotzas said the International Series engaged in a long-term international creative, cultural, educational and business exchange.

“For nearly a decade, the residency model of the QPAC International Series has seen, and will continue to see, some really important cultural exchanges from these international companies with both local artists and audiences alike,” Mr Kotzas said.

“Visiting artists become live ambassadors while they are in Queensland and, upon their return home, they become genuine advocates for QPAC, Brisbane and Queensland.

“Audiences have come on a journey with us since 2009; relishing a broad program that has seen grand balletic tradition united with innovation and bold artistry producing exceptional standards of performing arts experiences,” Mr Kotzas said.
