  For the first time, the Paris Opera Ballet will visit Australia in June

The Company, comprising 90 dancers and with full orchestra, will present two programs at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre: Swan Lake, a glorious and original version choreographed by Rudolf Nureyev and Jewels, George Balanchine’s three-act hommage to ballet and its evolution from classicism to modernity. Never before been seen in Australia, this elegant production is designed by Christian Lacroix.

These are two of the most spectacular stagings in the company’s repertoire and provide magnificent showcases for the talents of the entire ensemble, all members of which will travel to Australia for this never-to-be-repeated event, exclusive to Sydney.

On Sale: 5 December
Playing: 16 - 30 June, 2007
