WA Ballet takes us back to our childhoods with the production of Peter Pan to take stage at His Majesty’s Theatre as part of the Company’s 65th Anniversary celebrations this November and December.
The fantasy-filled, humorous adventure is perfect for the whole family, as we learnt from Peter himself, “Even though you want to try to, never grow up.”
Featuring all the beloved characters from the book including the ticking crocodile, mermaids, fairies, Tiger Lily and the Lost Boys.
The show also follows the plot of the book with, Peter Pan whisks the Darling children from their London home to the magical realm of Neverland. Wendy, John and Michael find danger and adventures hidden around every corner, while the wickedly wonderful Captain Hook lurks close behind.
The wonderful Kristian Fredrikson’s Edwardian inspired picture – book designs , Jon Buswell’s atmospheric lighting and a magnificent cinematic score performed by the West Australian Philharmonic Orchestra under the instruction of masterful Conductor Myron Romanul, will bring to life the pages of J.M. Barrie’s timeless classic.
WA Ballet Artistic Director Aurelien Scannella said, “Peter Pan is truly an adventure filled ballet for all ages. Whether you’re with a tiny tot or simply young at heart yourself, you’ll enjoy the pure escapism of Peter Pan.”
