The Friends of The Australian Ballet are thrilled to be partnering with Palace Opera & Ballet to bring Friends Members premiere access and discounts to the world’s best Ballet companies!

The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of Emeralds, while the fire of Rubies comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendor of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in Diamonds.

Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.

Captured live from Covent Garden, London 11 April 2017.

Paris Opera Ballet: Nureyev’s Swan Lake

Paris Opera Ballet: Nureyev’s Swan Lake

Thursday 16 February 2017
5:30pm – Pre-screening champagne talk
6pm – Screening

The Friends of The Australian Ballet are thrilled to be partnering with Palace Opera & Ballet to bring Friends Members premiere access and discounts to the world’s best Ballet companies!

Drawing on ancient Slavic and Norse mythology where destiny is often born out of the mysterious forces of nature, Swan Lake has become a legend in its own right. Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score is imbued with a deep sense of nostalgia, echoing the composer’s own experience of love as elusive as it was impossible.

In Rudolf Nureyev’s ‘Freudian’ version, conceived for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984, Prince Siegfried’s role is elevated to that of the hero.

Captured live from Palais Garnier, Paris 8 December 2016.
