The Australian Ballet Information

Founded in 1962, The Australian Ballet is one of the country's flagship arts companies.

Each year the company performs classical and contemporary works by major Australian and international choreographers, and new commissions that explore the development and future of this dynamic art form. The Australian Ballet's diverse repertoire reflects the company's vision: caring for tradition, daring to be different.

One of the busiest ballet companies in the world, The Australian Ballet annually presents approximately 200 performances in cities and regional areas around Australia, in addition to regular international touring. Versatility, technical excellence and a warm, friendly style are the trademarks of The Australian Ballet; qualities that have earned both critical and audience acclaim.

In 1836, La Sylphide revolutionised ballet, popularising dancing en pointe and giving audiences their first glimpse of the Romantic ballerina, unattainable and unearthly. The Scottish dreamer James is fascinated by a woodland sprite, and spurns his fiancée to follow her. Intent on capturing the ethereal beauty for his own, he accepts the help of a vengeful witch, who leads him to his downfall. This poignant two-act work will be paired with Marius Petipa's glittering party piece Paquita, the last flowering of the Romantic ballet and a chance for The Australian Ballet's dancers to display their sparkling technique.
