“There is a misconception that you need to understand music or ballet to enjoy them, but it is really for everyone. All these incredible performances are self-explanatory and you could be assured of falling in love with ballet.”

“The company will bring with them all the colour, enthusiasm and vibrancy that one would expect. It has earned high praise for its past ballet and opera performances, and the audience is bound to be drawn in and immersed in the atmosphere that these productions radiate – an unmissable treat for the whole family.”
