It is also The Royal Ballet’s signature work. To mark the Company’s 75th birthday in 2006, Monica Mason and Christopher Newton revitalized its landmark 1946 production. With Oliver Messel’s gorgeous original designs wonderfully re-imagined by Peter Farmer, and additional choreography by Anthony Dowell, Christopher Wheeldon and Frederick Ashton, has made a Sleeping Beauty for today which not only captures the mood of the original but shows that this is very much a living work for The Royal Ballet, growing and changing with the Company while celebrating its past.

      Cost: $50-$150
      Website: Shen Yun

      There are rare moments in history when a show, a book, or a piece of art takes its viewer to a whole new realm. Boundaries previously thought unmovable, like those between the stage and the backdrop, are erased and reinvented, never to be the same.

      Watching Shen Yun Performing Arts is witnessing just such a moment. And when Shen Yun arrives at Adelaide Feastival Theatre its newest innovations will be on ful display. For alongside its talent-laden cast of dancers and musicians, Shen Yun’s ingenious animated backdrops are leaving the entertainment industry astounded.

      “Going to the theatre and the movies at the same time,” is how Robert Stromberg, Academy Award-winning production designer for Avatar, described it. “It was so inspiring, I think I may have found some new ideas for the next Avatar.

      What Shen Yun’s projection designs do is seamlessly synchronize all aspects of the performance. The costumes’ colours, specific dance movements, drums, lighting, particular notes played by the orchestra—are all timed with animated movements on an enormous digital backdrop.

      China is one of the world’s most ancient civilizations, at about 5,000 years. Its rich dynastic history, majestic landscapes, and diverse ethnic groups become destinations on Shen Yun’s epic journey through time and space. The backdrop takes you there, from the snowcapped Himalayan peaks to the subtropical forests of Southwest China; from the tranquil Yangtze River Delta to the flaming beacon towers along the winding Great Wall; and from the boundless Mongolian grasslands to heavenly scenes of gods and deities.

      “Modern life asks much of us. As a fellow human being, I’m interested in how we respond – not in some head down, predictable, unsustainable way, but in a way that is meaningful, collaborative, creative, and fluid… just like a dance.

      The 5Rhythms, Dancing Path, offers such a map. We move ourselves and we move with others. Co-creating a dance that is authentic and unique in each moment, potent with what’s real, present and meaningful. This is the artistry of the dance. This is food for our creative souls, both on the dance floor and in the personal choreography of our life…

      This workshop does not require previous 5Rhythms or other dance experience, just your own willingness to move and be moved. I love this practice and I love moving bodies of all ages, sizes and abilities… so whether you are a first timer or a seasoned dancer, I warmly invite you to join me.”

      Everyone’s favourite fairytale – with a twist.

      Alexei Ratmansky, formerly artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet and now resident choreographer of American Ballet Theatre, has created a new version of Cinderella for The Australian Ballet.

      Set to Prokofiev’s beguiling score and featuring Surrealism-inspired sets and costumes by French designer Jérôme Kaplan, this new Cinderella is a fantasy land of 1940s glam – with some surprises in store!

      Ratmansky has been hailed as the saviour of traditional ballet, injecting fresh life into classical technique. His treatment of the original girl-made-good story is filled with his characteristic wit and flair.

      Following 2013′s Swan Lake, Cinderella promises to be another sell-out for The Australian Ballet.
