2016 Performances at the Sydney Opera House:
Vaslav Nijinsky changed dance forever with his explosive leap and his shockingly sensual choreography, before a dark descent into madness ended his career. John Neumeier, one of the greatest living choreographers of the story ballet and director of the acclaimed Hamburg Ballet, charts Nijinsky’s rise and fall through the vivid memories unfolding in the dancer’s mind during his last performance in a Swiss hotel. He recalls his troubled family, his ill-starred romances and the transcendent performances that brought him fame.
Performance dates:
November: 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28

This sparkling tale of magic and micheif romps along to Delibes' lilting score. It's amusing fun for the whole family - but its playful confusion of girl and doll packs a contemporary punch in the "uncanny valley" of the modern era.
Performance dates:
December: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21

We loved it. Our guide, who later sold us the program, was so knowledgeable and charming. We liked it that the admin staff knew our names on arrival. Ten out of ten, everyone. The Aria meal was superb and the ballet remains with me still. We would definitely book things with you again. Thank you so much for making our time in Sydney so special,
Philippa from Cornwall, U.K.

The tour of both the Opera House and the Concert Hall was interesting and given by a very good guide. The dinner at the Aria Restaurant was very well prepared and the service was excellent. The Ballet was wonderful - the house was sold out and the costumes and dances were magnificent. It was well worth the time and cost.
