Ballet Under the Stars is back for its 23rd edition! Established by Singapore Dance Theatre in 1995 as Singapore’s most loved and iconic outdoor dance event at the Fort Canning Green, we will be presenting a weekend of neo-classical works from 31 August – 2 September, and another weekend dedicated to masterpieces by Singapore Choreographer Choo-San Goh from 7 – 9 September.
“Ballet Under the Stars has become such an annual tradition, after 23 years, that many people who have become acquainted with Singapore Dance Theatre see us first in the park performances. For this reason alone, it is imperative that we present the absolute best of our repertoire suitable to the environment of the park’s performance situation. Our first weekend begins with one of George Balanchine’s masterpieces, The Four Temperaments, followed by a ballet made especially for us by Edwaard Liang with his brilliant 13th Heaven. The evening concludes with François Klaus’ Midnight Waltzes, a ballet meant to evoke the grandeur of the theatre. Our second weekend is a tribute to the Singaporean choreographer Choo-San Goh. We present some of his most iconic works with Schubert Symphony, Unknown Territory and Fives. Each of these three ballets represents a different aspect of Choo-San’s remarkable ability as a choreographer. Having Choo-San’s extraordinary ballets as one of the backbones of our performance repertoire is a part of heritage and history that cannot be measured.” says Artistic Director Janek Schergen.
