Look forward to Ballet Under the Stars, The Nutcracker, and many more

Singapore’s national dance company is no stranger to putting its own spin on classical dance pieces and this 2020, we just might continue seeing some of that.

Now in its 32nd performance season, the Singapore Dance Theatre has rolled out its line-up for the year, with SDT 2020 Dare to Dance. To start the year off on a romantic note, the dance company will present Romeo and Juliet (showing now till Mar 8), before switching things up in July with their ever-changing repertoire Master in Motion that’ll feature bold numbers like the new World Premiere by Tim Rushton; the highly-anticipated company premiere of Ibsen’s House by Val Caniparoli; plus Organ Concerto, originally created for SDT by Nils Christe.

Then get excited for the return of beloved outdoor production Ballet Under the Stars, at Fort Canning Park for two weekends in September, as the dancers will take on George Balachine’s most iconic works such as Serenade, Theme and Variations, as well as the most dynamic wedding scene from Don Quixote.

But things will eventually take a modern turn later in the year as Passages Contemporary Season will be led by renowned choreographers Timothy Harbour, Natalie Weir, and for the very first time in Singapore, award-winning Aussie/Kiwi choreographer and filmmaker Loughlan Prior.

Finally, to draw the year to a close, the dance troupe is set on showcasing the charming Christmas classic, The Nutcracker, which we’re hoping they’ll offer yet another unique twist.

Overall, it’s a pretty solid line-up if you ask us; leave it to the experts at SDT to show us how it’s done.
