HELP US BRING A ROMANTIC MASTERPIECE TO LIFE - BECOME A LA SYLPHIDE CAMPIONE!
West Australian Ballet invites you - as one of a 100 ‘exclusive' patrons - to donate $1,000 towards the set and costumes for a sparkling new production of La Sylphide to be premiered in May 2013. The production will cost in the vicinity of $800,000 to build, and your contribution as a ‘Campione' will assist the creative team to fulfill their vision for this new ballet.
Set in Scotland, La Sylphide tells the story of a forest sylph who uses her magical gifts to attract a young Scotsman on the eve of his nuptials; ultimately leaving his fiancée at the alter to chase after the sylph. Originally choreographed by August Bournonville in 1836 - with new sets from Richard Roberts, and costumes from Lexi George - this stunning new production captures all the passion and charm of this great Romantic-era classic. By making a gift of $1,000 towards the production, you will become one of our favoured Campione and:
be thanked at a special function on stage during the La Sylphide season in May 2013;
be acknowledged in the La Sylphide souvenir program as a Campione; and
ENDOW A LASTING LEGACY - THE KIRA BOUSLOFF BEQUEST CIRCLE
Remembering West Australian Ballet in your will ensures that ballet will continue to flourish in Western Australia and beyond. An endowment can be named in honour of you or a loved one - a special memory and a lasting relationship with West Australian Ballet. IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO BUY A BRICK!
Even though WAB is now settled into the exciting new State ballet centre in Maylands, it is not too late to become a special part of this project and have your name ‘up in lights'.
With a gift of just $500, your name will be featured on a special wall featured in the building, and your contribution will personally give you pride of place in this historic development for West Australian Ballet.
Funds raised from the sale of ‘bricks' will ensure that this stunning art deco building is a vibrant, artistic home for talented dancers and our wider communities.
