The Australian Ballet reveals 2017 season

A season of wonderment.

The Australian Ballet has revealed a season of wonderment for 2017, offering a stellar program combining contemporary ballet along with all-time classics. 

The 2017 program begins with the opulent, The Sleeping Beauty, fresh from garnering widespread acclaim and selling out seasons on its debut in Melbourne. Returning for a hotly anticipated encore, the story of Princess Aurora is brought masterfully to life with dazzling set and costume designs by the internationally renowned theatre designer Gabriela Tylesova, and danced to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score. 

Elsewhere, Faster is the 2017 season contemporary triple bill, showcasing the stamina and technique of the dancers through the creative vision of three of the world’s leading choreographers. The titular piece by David Bintley is an Olympics-inspired work charting the exultant highs and devastating lows of elite athletes, accompanied by an energetic score from Australian composer Matthew Hindson.

Celebrating its 25th birthday in 2017, Graeme Murphy’s Nutcracker – The Story of Clara comes to the stage in a radical retelling of the lauded masterpiece. Meanwhile, George Balanchine’s Symphony in C is the title work of a double bill showcasing the grace and elegance of classical dance with modern speed and a touch of Hollywood pizazz.                  

Capping it off, the Australian premiere of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is set to captivate audiences in an Australian premiere with choreography from the world renowned Christopher Wheeldon.
