For the eighth year running, some of the finest dancers in the region will grace our shores through performances by the Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT). The much anticipated 'Ballet Illuminations' makes its annual comeback this year with a special piece amidst its lineup that has never been seen before in Malaysia.


Showcasing the highlights from the company's repertoire, expect a diverse performance of classical and contemporary ballet by award-winning choreographers. 'Ballet Illuminations' will bring their talents to both the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) and the Performance Arts Centre of Penang (PenangPAC).
