Project Rameau

World Premiere

In an exclusive season, two of Australia’s greatest contemporary arts companies come together on stage for the first time.

A mutual passion for Rameau’s perfumed and powerful French Baroque dance music sparks this new production by Rafael Bonachela and Richard Tognetti. Rameau’s flair for rhythm and melody, and feeling for choreography, leads many to name him the greatest ballet composer of his time, certainly the most influential. Bonachela’s dynamic choreography, innate musicality and theatricality serve to illuminate this brilliant music.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
