Chantry Dance Company presents two compelling contemporary ballets.
'Vincent - a stranger to himself' is a dramatic ballet based on the life and loves of Van Gogh. The ballet explores the artist's relationship with the women in his life, and with his one true passion - his art.
‘Eine Kleine Nachtmusik’ set to Mozart’s famous composition, offers you, as the audience, a unique experience. The ballet is especially designed for you to create your own interpretation of what you see, and to discover the excitement in feeling free to appreciate the ballet however you wish.
SHOW INCLUDES A POST SHOW TALK BACK SESSION
YOU ARE INVITED BEHIND THE SCENES!

In Aida, Verdi masterfully puts the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe: where kingdoms rise and fall and the sands of time grind onwards. There could be no grander setting for such an opera than Sydney Harbour itself, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun.

We are delighted to be screening George Farquhar’s wild comedy as part of the Stamford Georgian Festival 2015. The ‘Beaux’: Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money.
