The Lilac Fairy Campaign

In 2015 The Friends of The Australian Ballet (NSW) Ltd became the custodian of the Lilac Fairy for David McAllister’s new production of the Sleeping Beauty. As custodian, we will be acknowledged in all recreations of the production in Perpetuity.

We were very proud to have our members contribute to the Lilac Fairy fund to allow us to make this generous donation to The Australian Ballet.

And it’s not too late, you can still contribute to the Lilac Fairy Campaign and receive a Lilac Ribbon to wear proudly at FAB events as acknowledgement for your contribution.

  • Bronze Donation  – $20
  • Silver Donation – $50
  • Gold Donation – $100
  • Platinum Donation $150 or more
