SDCNext month, Sydneysiders will get to see the world premiere of Sydney Dance Company’s Les Illuminations, a beautifully intimate new work by artistic director Rafael Bonachela, set to a stunning score by composer Benjamin Britten, performed live on stage by much-loved singer Katie Noonan. The work takes its name from Britten’s romantic song cycle, written with dedications to his life partner Peter Pears, in the late 1930s and inspired by the work of French poet Arthur Rimbaud.

Info: Sydney Opera House, August 28-31. www.sydneydancecompany.com
