Arche, by Melbourne Ballet
“Exquisite is the only world to describe Melbourne Ballet Company’s latest production Arche`.” -Melbourne Observer
Be enthralled by one of Australia’s most innovative and exciting ballet Company Melbourne Ballet, bringing world class ballerinas back to the Burrinja stage with their graceful and evocative new work Arche.
Inspired by the world’s most famous ballet Swan Lake-The Dying Swan and Yates’ sonnet Leda and the Swan, Melbourne Ballet will enchant you with this powerful and exquisite new piece.
Set to the music of Tchaikovsky, Einaudi, Arnalds, Morricone and Jeanreanaud, with choreography by Simon Hoy, the stars align for a thrilling night of world class Ballet once again at Burrina.
‘Arche’ is the Greek word that indicates the beginning, the principle from which the elements arise and the force that explains their birth and death. Ancient Greek philosophers sought the Archè in the four elements, earth, wind, air and fire. In Greek mythology the figure of the swan is seen as a messenger of the gods and is associated with divinity itself. Melbourne Ballet Company’s latest production embodies this powerful symbolism with choreography placing emphasis on the grace contained within each gesture.
