Here is a rundown on The Australian Ballet’s 2016 season:

 

The Australian Ballet’s Cristiano MartinoCinderella

“Everyone’s favourite fairytale – with a twist. Witty, vibrant, glamorous and romantic, Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella will sweep audiences off their feet. After sell-out seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, this smash-hit crowd-pleaser heads north to bewitch audiences in an exclusive Brisbane season.”

Brisbane: February 19-24 (6 performances) at QPAC

 

Vitesse

“In a heart-pounding night of modern ballet, three of the world’s greatest contemporary choreographers – Christopher Wheeldon, Jiři Kylián and William Forsythe – shake the artform to its foundations.”

Melbourne: March 11-21 (11 performances)
at the Arts Centre

Sydney: April 26-May 16 (11 performances) at
Sydney Opera House

 

Swan Lake

“From the first yearning bars of Tchaikovsky’s score, Swan Lake casts an otherworldly spell. With its bewitched Swan Queen, its doomed Prince, its glittering villainess and its drifts of white tutus, this is the ultimate night at the ballet.”

Sydney: April 1-20 (21 performances) at Sydney Opera House

Adelaide: May 26-31 (6 performances)
at Adelaide Festival Centre

Melbourne: June 7-18 (14 performances)
at the Arts Centre

 

Australian Ballet 2016 SeasonSymphony in C

“Spins, leaps and lifts: Symphony in C is dance at its most exhilarating. This all-thrills double bill offers George Balanchine’s tutu extravaganza alongside a gala program of glittering party pieces and two new works from The Australian Ballet’s emerging choreographic stars.”

Sydney: April 29-May 14 (9 performances) at Sydney Opera House

 

Romeo and Juliet

“Melbourne audiences will swoon for one of the USA’s leading ballet companies when Houston Ballet presents its vibrant, sensual new production of Romeo and Juliet. Acclaimed Australian choreographer Stanton Welch’s traditional production is faithful to the Shakespearean tale, brimming with swordplay, bawdy humour and tragic love, all set to Sergei Prokofiev’s heartrending score.”

Melbourne: June 30- July 9 (12 performances)
at the Arts Centre

 

Nijinsky

“Celebrity, visionary, muse: Vaslav Nijinsky changed dance forever with his explosive leap and his shockingly sensual choreography, before a dark descent into madness ended his career. John Neumeier, one of the greatest living choreographers of the story ballet, charts Nijinsky’s rise and fall through the vivid memories unfolding in the dancer’s mind during his last performance in a Swiss hotel.”

Melbourne: September 7-17 (11 performances)
at the Arts Centre

Adelaide: October 14-19 (6 performances) at Adelaide Festival Centre

Sydney: November 11-28 (19 performances)
at Sydney Opera House

 

Coppélia

“This sparkling tale of magic and mischief romps along to Delibes’ lilting score. It’s amusing fun for the whole family – but its playful confusion of girl and doll packs 
a contemporary punch in the “uncanny valley” of the modern era.”

Melbourne: Sept. 23- October 1 (11 performances)
at Palais Theatre in St Kilda

Sydney: December 2-21 (22 performances)
at the Sydney Opera House

 

Additional behind-the-scenes events include Boys’ Day, Brisbane Open Day, Post-Show Q&A’s, McAllister in Conversation and The Black Swan Program. For further information, visit australianballet.com.au or call 1300 369 741.
