In Melbourne, the whole company brings you a taste of what you missed this year including pieces from New York Dialects (George Balanchine’s Seranade and an excerpt from Pam Tanowitz’s Watermark) and Counterpointe (an excerpt from William Forsythe’s Artifact Suite).

The orchestra is tuning up. The curtain is rising. Come and experience the thrill of live performance with The Australian Ballet.
