2017 Performances at the Sydney Opera House:
Faster (Contemporary Ballet - 2 hours and 20 minutes, with two intervals)
Continuing the momentum of our Vitesse, 20:21 and Chroma programs, Faster features David Bintley’s Olympic-inspired crowd-pleaser alongside new works from Wayne McGregor and Tim Harbour. This is contemporary ballet at its visceral best in a heart-pumping triple bill.  
 
David Bintley, artistic director of Birmingham Royal Ballet, made Faster in 2012, the year of the London Olympic Games. Set to the Australian composer Matthew Hindson’s jubilant score, the ballet shows off the dancers’ athleticism and endurance as it explores the exultations and challenges of elite sports.

Nutcracker - The Story of Clara (1 hour and 54 minutes, with one interval)
Graeme Murphy’s acclaimed reimagining of The Nutcracker, like his Swan Lake, masterfully weaves together the enchantment and fantasy of the beloved classic with emotional depth and a modern perspective.  
 
Clara, a former star of the Ballets Russes, has settled in Australia. On Christmas Eve, nearing the end of her life, she relives her past: her childhood in Imperial Russia, the Revolution, her travels and her triumphs on stage. Murphy mines the grand sweep of her history for universal truths about love, loss and resilience, exploring the colours and textures of Tchaikovsky’s marvellous score. Designs by the revered Kristian Fredrikson powerfully evoke Clara’s world, from the shimmer of an Australian summer to the glamour of Tsarist Russia.
Performance dates:
6:30pm
May: 15

May: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

Traveler Reviews

A great package which included the tour, meal and ticket to the ballet. No hiccups in the entire event which was professionally organised
and lived up to our expectations - well done to all involved.

Reviewed by: Brad M, January 2017

This tour is definitely worth it. I had never seen a ballet before, so I figured the Sydney Opera House was the best place to do it. Don't really think its my thing, but the ballet was still awesome. The dinner at Aria was phenomenal, and our tour guide of the Opera House was very knowledgeable about the history of the building. Highly recommend doing this tour if you are in Sydney.
