CONFIGURATIONS, Singapore Ballet
We are thrilled to share the extraordinary journey of recreating the iconic costumes for Configurations, an everlasting ballet masterpiece choreographed by the renowned artist, Goh Choo San, for the prestigious Singapore Ballet’s 35th-anniversary celebrations.
Originally premiering in 1981 at the American Ballet Theatre (ABT), Configurations captured hearts worldwide with its striking visuals and vibrant shades of bright blue, perfectly complementing Samuel Barber’s emotive Piano Concerto.
From poignant pas de deux to a high-energy, flamboyant finale, Configurations beautifully blends mid-20th-century American sensibility with neo-romantic spirit, leaving audiences enchanted.
As we commemorate the rich heritage of ballet and its enduring impact on the world of performing arts, we are honored to have contributed to the revival of this timeless ballet masterpiece, witnessing Goh Choo San’s vision come alive once more.
