"In its diamond anniversary year, West Australian Ballet presents a dazzling triple bill. Poéme de l’extase – Australian Premiere, Originally created by John Cranko for Margot Fonteyn, Poéme de l’extase tells the story of a famous actress recalling her past. Flattered at first by the attentions of a much younger man who falls in love with her, she then recalls her former loves and realising that this part of her life has already fulfilled, rejects the hapless young man. Scriabin’s music, with its accumulation torrents of emotion, coupled with opulent designs from Pablo Núñez, capture the essence of the Belle Époque in this stunning ballet. Jeu de carte, One of his most adored and enduring works, Jeu de carte, a poker game in three deals, revels in Cranko’s playful tenacity. The protagonist is the clown faced, red-wigged Joker, whose disruptive, chameleonic presence determines the outcome of the game. Set to Stravinsky’s witty score, this ballet has been a hit with audiences the world over. Prélude á l’aprés-midi d’un faune & Dying Swan

Brought back especially for the company’s 60th anniversary, Prélude á l’aprés-midi d’un faune was choreographed by Barry Moreland in 1985 for former West Australian Ballet star Ronnie Van den Bergh. The work brilliantly captures the languid imagery from Stephane Mallarme, on whose poem Debussy based his famous composition. The final diamond in this program of exquisite gems is Michel Fokine’s Dying Swan, created for luminary Anna Pavlova in 1905 and restaged in 2012 by Perth’s own world-star, Margaret Illmann."

BWW Review: TITLE OF SHOW A Charming Winner
by Frank Benge - Feb 6, 2017

TITLE OF SHOW is a one-act musical, with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and a book by Hunter Bell. The show is pretty much the Urban Dictionary definition of "meta". It not only chronicles its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, it also chronicles the struggles of the author and composer/lyricist as they create a musical about creating a musical. It's sort of like those endlessly reflective fun house mirrors. TITLE OF SHOW was chosen for production by the Musical Theatre Festival and premiered there, in September 2004. It later transferred to Off-Broadway in 2006, picking up three Obie Awards, and finally made it to Broadway later that same year, where it was nominated for Best Book of a Musical. In this production by Austin Theatre Project, the show has been reconfigured as two acts with no noticeable difference for the audience. (more...)
