Richard Bradbury, Ocean Shores.

I’m writing to say how fantastic last night’s performance by the Byron Ballet of Midsummer Nights Dream was. I took my 11-year-old daughter for a night at the ballet, and we were enormously impressed by the technical prowess of the dancers.

We are old Melbournites and we used to go to the Australian Ballet performances at the State Theatre regularly, and what we saw last night in the Byron Community Theatre rated amongst the best ballet performances we have ever seen.

Every dancer was encased in their character: it was great to see the high level of acting alongside the beauty of the dance steps. The choreography was impressive, especially the pas de deux pieces. In a small theatre setting it was all the more thrilling to be up close to such a high level of dance performance.

Congratulations to the principals and cast, and to the wonderful teaching staff at the ballet school. You are a credit to the creative arts in the Byron community.

  1. And with the gracious pas de deux of the dance with a lot higher score than a pass came the great music of Felix Mendelssohn of the Romantic Period.
