A sea of candles is set to outshine the administrative duties and meetings at The Grand Lodge Office for a spell this autumn. More specifically, the Candlelight series invites Adelaideans to find a seat inside the charming, old-time venue and enjoy an enchanting ballet special. From Tchaikovsky’s tragic Swan Lake to the Russian composer’s longest ballet, Sleeping Beauty, The Amicus Strings will inspire audiences with selections from these classical ballets and more.
The legendary Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky began composing at age four, and he went on to become one of the most celebrated composers of all time. While he may have only written three ballets, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, and The Nutcracker, they are three of the most beloved. The enchantment of fairytales gild his creations, unparalleled music brings them to life, and they evoke profound emotional responses.

Fall under the spell of Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from The Nutcracker, Dance of the Swans from Swan Lake, and more as you sit surrounded by countless candles. Not only will you be moved by the emotive melodies, but you will also be able to appreciate colourful choreography as ballerinas accompany the music.
