“We are thrilled to be able to continue to share the spirit-lifting joy of ballet with our At Home with Ballet TV Digital Season. These are challenging times for the world and ballet is something that people can turn to for escapism, fantasy and a sense of hope.”

Cinderella
Alexei Ratmansky

Friday 17 April – Friday 1 May 2020

All the storybook fantasy you know and love, with a surprising touch of Surrealist style. Step into the glittering, glamorous world of Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella, with its hilarious stepsisters, dashing prince and spirited heroine. A heart-fluttering romance that’s the perfect fit for a cosy night in. Starring Lana Jones and Daniel Gaudiello, this production was filmed in 2016 at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

Romeo & Juliet
Graeme Murphy

Friday 1 – Friday 15 May 2020

Graeme Murphy’s Romeo & Juliet follows Shakespeare’s story of ill-starred lovers, framing it in a kaleidoscope of different settings to emphasise the universal nature of the tale. Young passion smoulders at its core, but Murphy also encompasses the consequences of greed, war and implacable hatred.

The digital season program can be viewed at Digital Season.

There are some beautiful Ballet books available.
