What’s On In Perth: 16th to 30th September
We are well and truly into the month of September. For this fortnight’s ‘What’s On’ feature, we thought we would shine a spotlight on some dance-themed events. After all, it is spring. Surely that’s a good reason to put your dancing shoes on!
Lord of the Dance is coming to Perth once again! Kicking off its Australian tour in Perth, the show is only in town for 5 days. The story behind the dance and music phenomenon is based on old Irish folklore but there is nothing old about this show. It’s explosive with special effect lighting, holographs, dancing robots and acrobatics. Judging by the rave reviews that followed a sell-out season in London, I’m guessing you won’t want to miss this spectacular show!

Show Dates: 15th to 20th September, approximately $70-$100
Address: Crown Theatre, Great Eastern Hwy, Burswood

West Australian Ballet Production: Coppélia
Looking for something a little more classical? The West Australian Ballet has teamed up with WASO (WA Symphony Orchestra) to present Coppélia at His Majesty’s Theatre. Set in 1878 in Hahndorf South Australia, the story is set to the charming music of Léo Delibes and is a much-loved Romantic classic about two lovers and an eccentric doctor. The production is showing from the 11th to the 26th of September and something for the whole family to enjoy!
