The Silver Rose

"Die silberne Rose" by renowned Australian choreographer Graeme Murphy was commissioned by the Bavarian State Ballet Company and premiered by that company in December 2005 at the Munich Nationaltheater. It features music by Carl Vine carefully selected by the composer from his orchestral catalogue to accompany Murphy's re-interpretation of the famous opera scenario, Der Rosenkavalier, by Hugo von Hoffmannsthal.

In 2010 The Australian Ballet brought a new production of the work to the southern hemisphere, playing in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
