Ballet Illuminations is a joint collaboration between Singapore Dance Theatre, klpac and penangpac.
Artistic Director of Singapore Dance Theatre, Janek Schergen comments, “This year, in Kuala Lumpur, we are bringing a selection of ballets of unparalleled distinction. The evening begins with one of the most famous pieces of the ballet repertoire with George Balanchine’s masterpiece of choreography Serenade. P.I. Tchaikovsky’s remarkable score, Serenade for Strings, was the initial inspiration. The centerpiece of the evening will be Theme and Variations, originally created for American Ballet Theatre, also by George Balanchine. The culmination of the evening is a ballet made especially for us by Timothy Harbour. It is full company work called, Linea Adora, and was made for us as a highlight of our 30th Anniversary season in 2018. The ballet features every member of the company and was composed to a recent composition of Philip Glass. Timothy is a resident choreographer of The Australian Ballet and has an international career as an acclaimed choreographer. ”
