Presented by The Australian Ballet in association with Darwin Festival and Darwin Entertainment Centre
The Australian Ballet’s Regional Tour Ballet Gala is spreading the joy of dance around the country with a dazzling night of ballet.
A highlight of the program will be Swan Lake Variations, a tribute to the beauty of the best-loved composer of ballet music, Tchaikovsky. This never-before-seen piece has been especially choreographed for the Regional Tour Ballet Gala by former Artistic Director David McAllister.
Also included as part of the show is a selection of pas de deux that highlight the intimacy of dance performed by two artists and two new commissions that have been curated especially for regional audiences.
Don’t miss your chance to experience the magic of ballet live on stage.
