Italy’s celebrated Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company (La Scala Ballet) performs for the first time ever in Australia – and only in Brisbane – as part of the QPAC International Series.

Bringing their 110-strong company (including 75 dancers) to QPAC’s Lyric Theatre, La Scala Ballet will perform two iconic productions, both much-loved and stunning works of the classical repertoire – Rudolf Nureyev’s festive Don Quixote, and the haunting Giselle.

With its hauntingly beautiful ensemble of tutus gliding eerily through the forest, Giselle is classical tradition in all its purity and splendour.

Featuring an international cast, Giselle continues to thrill audiences with its contrast between sunny village life and a dark and terrible kingdom inhabited by spirits.

A tale of unrequited love, betrayal and redemption, Giselle is the story of an innocent peasant girl who dies of a broken heart upon learning her beloved Albrecht is engaged to someone else. Resurrected in the afterlife by the vengeful Wili maidens, Giselle must perform the ultimate act of forgiveness to prevent Albrecht falling prey to their irresistible dance.

La Scala Ballet Company performs the unforgettable original Coralli-Perrot choreography in this revival by Yvette Chauviré, set to while Adolphe Adam’s score.

Make a night of it! On the evening, head to either Mister Paganini or Popolo to enjoy one of their special dining offers.
