Ballet SA has announced its 2017 – 2018 season which incorporates the theme of “Bold and Beautiful.”

In a press release, artistic director Willy Shives said: “This season I put together a program that showcases the diversity, strength and beauty of our company. I continue to bring the timeless classics that we have all come to love, and counter that with creative dance works that explore contemporary visions and fresh concepts. I want to continue to bring dance that is inspiringly beautiful and expressively bold.”

Ballet SA will open its new season on October 13 with Giselle, one of the great romantic ballets of the 19th century and one which every major ballet company includes in their repertoire.

In November, the company will present its annual production of The Nutcracker with choreography by Shives and Gerald Arpino.

The season will close in February 2018 with RED: Contemporary Masters which will include the world premiere of Shives’ Bolero and an encore presentation of Elements which the company first performed at Luminaria 2016. RED will also feature a mixture of choreography by Gerald Arpino and George Balanchine.
