2013 SYDNEY SEASON
“A world-class ensemble, assured and brilliantly versatile" The Age
After the year of celebration that was the company's 50th anniversary, The Australian Ballet continues the party in 2013 by bringing a program to the Sydney Opera House, dedicated to the jewels of classical ballet. The year is Masterpieces.
The 2013 season opens with Don Quixote, a bravura classic with Spanish va-voom, perfect for first-timers and kids alike. The triple bill Vanguard showcases key works from ballet’s game-changers: Balanchine, Kylián and McGregor. The year continues with the world’s most authentic Romantic ballet, La Sylphide paired with a Petipa showpiece. And to bring the year to close is the world premiere of a newly imagined fairy-tale, Cinderella. All the performances are accompanied by Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.

Introduction to The Ballet
Founded in 1962, The Australian Ballet is one of the country's flagship arts companies, and for five decades has been the defining face of ballet in Australia.
Each year the company performs classical repertoire and contemporary works by major Australian and international choreographers, as well as new commissions that explore the development and future of this dynamic art form. The Australian Ballet's diverse repertoire reflects the company's motto: caring for tradition, daring to be different.
One of the busiest ballet companies in the world, The Australian Ballet annually presents approximately 200 performances in cities and regional areas around Australia, in addition to regular international touring. Recent tours include Paris, Manchester, Tokyo, Shanghai, Auckland, Cardiff and a season in London for which the company won the UK Critics' Circle award for Best Foreign Dance Company.
Versatility, technical excellence and a warm, friendly style are the trademarks of The Australian Ballet; qualities that have earned both critical and audience acclaim.
