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.

🥀 ROMEO AND JULIET 2021 🥀

The Company has elicits a warning in the words of Shakespeare...

“These violent delights have violent ends.” 🗡

With Principal Artist Ako Kondo debuting her dream role alongside her real-life Romeo, Principal Artist Chengwu Guo, we can almost taste the beginnings of something special! Cranko’s choreography has synthesised drama, dance, design and young, ferocious love in this gorgeous take on the timeless story. With both Cranko’s Romeo and Juliet and The Australian Ballet debuting in 1962, we know that this collaboration is the dawn of greatness!

Although Stalin and various Bolshoi dancers pronounced the music as “undanceable,” Prokofiev’s score has not only endured, but is celebrated amongst modern audiences globally. Enhancing the story is Jürgen Rose’s designs of a grandeur, aristocratic, medieval Verona, ensuring a night that will surely whisk us away!

David’s Thoughts:
“I have danced performances of Romeo where the audience was with us in every scene; they become a part of the ballet.”
