Beyond Bach - Three of Us - The Sentimental Bloke
Australian Ballet 1995
State Theatre Melbourne
The Australian Ballet is the largest classical ballet company in Australia. It was founded by J. C. Williamson Theatres Ltd. and the Australian Elizabethan Theatre Trust in 1962, with the English-born dancer, teacher, repetiteur and director Dame Peggy van Praagh as founding artistic director. Today, it is recognised as one of the world's major international ballet companies.
Beyond Bach is a reminiscence on the form of classical ballet, exploring the influence of Bach on the development of ballet in the courts of Louis XIV. A lady in court attire sets the scene, gliding across the stage and disappearing enigmatically, before dancers in short tunics take off into athletic sequences of dance driven by the complexities of the Bach arrangements.
