Masterpiece In Motion Presented by Singapore Dance Theatre

Masterpiece in Motion speaks for itself - featuring classic jewel pieces that stands the course of time in SDT's repertoire list. This season presents the most compelling and exquisite works by renowned international choreographers.

A triple bill of ballet gems, this year's Masterpiece in Motion will see the company premiere of The Four Temperaments by George Balanchine, followed by a Premiere by Edwaard Liang, and a restaging of the mesmerising work of Paquita, choreography after Marius Petipa.

An evening at the ballet has never been this bold. Come and experience for yourself the magnificent awe and splendour of these charming masterpieces.

"You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive."
— Merce Cunningham

What could be more blissful than a weekend of bridal bells ringing and couple-loving celebrations?The second weekend of Ballet Under the Stars presents a paradise of sparkling classical enchantment as three iconic weddings take the stage — Coppélia Act III, Aurora’s Wedding from Sleeping Beauty, and Don Quixote Act III."Dancing is surely the most basic and relevant of all forms of expression. Nothing else can so effectively give outward form to an inner experience. Poetry and music exist in time. Painting and architecture are a part of space. But only the dance lives at once in both space and time. In it the creator and the thing created, the artist and the expression, are one."— Lyall Watson
