Where is it? Various venues around Australia
Watching ballet on TV is nowhere near as engaging as seeing it in real life. The amount of time, practice and raw talent dancers put into each Australian Ballet performance is incredible. There is such power behind the grace. The main company is performing Madame Butterfly until April 27. From July 12 to August 20, the regional arm of the Australian Ballet, The Dancers Company, will perform Don Quixote in Tasmania, regional Victoria and NSW. Perhaps the most sensational way to experience what our national ballet company can do is by attending the annual Pas de Deux in Paradise, when the Australian Ballet performs at luxury resort qualia on Hamiton Island (July 1-3, 2011).
