This year, The Australian Ballet celebrates 40 years of taking ballet to regional centres all around the nation with a ‘greatest hits’ gala. This dazzling program will feature key works from four decades of touring, along with a divertissement program of crowd-pleasing classical pas de deux.
The icing on this 40th birthday cake will be Swan Lake Variations, a never-before-seen piece choreographed by David McAllister. It’s a last gift to regional audiences from this beloved icon, as he passes the baton to new Artistic Director David Hallberg.
Don’t miss this celebration of The Australian Ballet’s Regional Tour when it comes to Warrnambool.
