A Tchaikovsky ballet—whether Swan Lake, The Nutcracker or Sleeping Beauty—is an experience hard to beat. The music is sensational, and the lyrical melodies become even more impressive when ballerinas take to the stage. These ballets, however, are a grand spectacle that do not come around very often.
However, Candlelight Ballet is helping Perth get a taste of the magic in some of the city’s most emblematic buildings. As candles flicker and glow, music will soar and two ballerinas will glide along the stage to captivate audiences. Together, they will dazzle and delight.
Once again, the mesmerizing display of music and dance will feature renditions of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker Suite by members of Australian Baroque. And thanks to the impressive reception at the previous concerts, the upcoming edition will also include songs from the Carmen Suite, such as Toreador and Segeduilla.
Ballerinas Sarah Hepburn and Lauren Murray will take to the stage and perform at select moments throughout the night to accompany the stirring music and dazzle us with graceful movements as candles illuminate the space.
Really, we can’t think of a better way to spend an evening than with a magical night of Candlelight Ballet unfolding before you on Saturday 18 February. Sit back, relax and be enchanted by the music and dance of arguably the world’s greatest ballet!

Please Note: For the safety of performers and the audience, the candles are flameless.
