The Australian Ballet performs in Sydney for the first time in over a year with a triple bill, which includes a brand new work by American contemporary choreographer Pam Tanowitz, commissioned by new Artistic Director David Hallberg. This will be performed alongside two 20th-century classics from George Balanchine: Serenade and The Four Temperaments. Tanowitz (who Hallberg has known for years) now makes work for companies such as New York City Ballet, The Royal Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. In announcing the 2021 season, Hallberg told Limelight that Tanowitz’s piece would be made on the men of TAB, using the same number of women as in Serenade. It will be danced to music by Caroline Shaw, who in 2013 was the youngest recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for Music.
