Singapore Dance Theatre's 25th Anniversary Gala

25th Anniversary - Edwaard Liang

Yet another breath taking performance to be presented by the Singapore Dance Theatre. Singapore Dance Theatre will be having two nights of performance in celebration of its 25th Silver Anniversary this year.

Since its establishment in 1988, the company has built its reputation as Singapore’s premier dance institution. In conjunction with the celebrations, the Company will present a 25th Anniversary Gala performance on 31 May and 1 June at the Esplanade Theatre, featuring a myriad of the best and most memorable pieces from the repertoire. The Gala will be one that will pay tribute to SDT’s past, celebrate the present and represent the Company’s anticipation towards the future.

The evening will commence with a performance of Goh Choo San’s Beginnings, the first ballet ever performed by SDT. This will be followed by Serenade, the most performed ballet by George Balanchine, the father of neoclassical ballet; ZIN! an upbeat and vibrant piece by renowned Dutch choreographer Nils Christe; Sleeping Beauty Pas De Deux; as well as a newly commissioned work by award-winning Chinese-American choreographer, Edwaard Liang, featuring the full company of SDT dancers, and Fives by Goh Choo San. The Gala will also have international artists from The Australian Ballet and the Queensland Ballet, joining in the celebration and performing exquisite works.
