The Australian Ballet’s long-awaited productions of Anna Karenina and Romeo and Juliet showcase the power of storytelling through the beauty of dance, moving us in ways that only ballet can.
In keeping with the company’s vision of bringing the best contemporary works to Australia, 2022 will also feature a feast of contemporary work, including the epic Kunstkamer. Created at Nederlands Dans Theater by four of today’s most in-demand choreographers, this vast work has never been staged by any other dance company in the world. It will show The Australian Ballet’s dancers in exciting new territory, exploring this ‘cabinet of curiosities’.
The triple bill for 2022, Instruments of Dance, is an electrifying collaboration of 21st-century composers and dancemakers, with landmark new works by the resident choreographers of The Royal Ballet and New York City Ballet alongside a new commission from The Australian Ballet’s own resident choreographer, Alice Topp.
