Ballets de Monte-Carlo brings its full troupe to Australia

For the first time, the renowned Ballets de Monte-Carlo brings its full troupe to Australia in Melbourne June 27th to July 6th, 2019. It will be showcasing superb dancers in Jean-Christophe Maillot’s modern take on Swan Lake.

Maillot, the company’s director, responds to Tchaikovsky’s immortal score with a provocative vision that pits black against white and good against evil. 


A blend of neo-classical ballet and modern dance, LAC signals its departure from tradition and its plunge into the depths of the psyche with costumes by Winter Olympics designer Philippe Guillotel, who deconstructs tulle, the basis of the tutu, to resemble the pelt of a forest creature. 


Set designer Ernest Pignon-Ernest constructs an architecture of black-and-white silk and black metal to frame the fears and desires of the characters.


Don’t miss this unique chance to see an adventurous company turn tradition upside-down.


There is also a  chance to enhance your LAC experience with the chance to win a luxury trip to Monaco. 


See the competition page for details.
