The Australian Ballet

The Australian Ballet

The Friends of the Australian Ballet work closely with The Australian Ballet to host Behind the Scenes events for our members. The proceeds of the events go towards an annual donation to assist The Australian Ballet.

In 2015, FAB became the custodian of The Lilac Fairy character in David McAllister’s premiere production of The Sleeping Beauty through a donation of $100,000. We look forward to supporting The Lilac Fairy for the life of the production.

FAB is committed to continuing support for The Australian Ballet projects and productions.
