Following last year’s sold-out performances, Singapore Ballet returns to the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre with yet another spirited triple-bill set against the Marina Bay skyline.


The evening opens with Absence of Story by Toru Shimazaki, a challenging piece that replaced narrative with lyrical energy to pay tribute to Brahms.


Val Caniparoli’s Triptych, inspired by photographer Lalage Snow’s powerful portrait series of British servicemen before, during and after their deployment to Afghanistan, is an emotional response to the realities of war. 


Ending off the night is Tim Rushton’s Evening Voices, a tender yet magnificent piece set to the score of Sergey Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil, that humbles as it uplifts.


Experience the beauty and technical virtuosity of Singapore Ballet in this stellar evening of dance by the Esplanade Waterfront.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places.


In the event of rain, the start time of event may be delayed. Please check da:ns festival's Facebook page for updates.
