Calling all Sydney-siders, if you’re looking for an extra special Christmas show then this one’s for you.Angelina Ballerina is coming to life at Sydney Opera House this December.
My daughters are so excited about this, both love dancing and watching Angelina on ABC 4 Kids, plus we were lucky enough to see the last live Angelina ballet (Angelina’s Star Performance) when it came to town two years ago.
This new show, Angelina’s Big Audition, follows the ballerina mouse as she and her friends try to get into the prestigious Camembert Academy of Performing Arts. Angelina is worried that if she succeeds she will miss home and her best friend, but along the way Angelina meets new friends and learns about new dances including jazz and hip hop. Will she be good enough at the audition and if she is accepted, will she want to go?
Performed by the Royal New Zealand Ballet, with choreography, sets and amazing costumes by the English National Ballet to a music arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s music, I have no doubt this will be a stunning production from start to finish.
This is a great introduction for all children to the world of ballet and what better venue to see it in. Suitable for ages three to ten, the show runs from the 20th to the 24th December. Ticket prices start at $29, contact Sydney Opera House for full details. Angelina Ballerina will play Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide in January 2012.
