We should be immensely proud of our ballet. We have sen them perform more than once and they are simply breathtaking. We had never been to a ballet before and were worried that we might not like it. Just brilliant. We've been to see other companies perform and were disappointed. If you've never been, try it, you'll like it. And then go and see an opera, you'll like that too.

I have attended the ballet in many countries throughout the world and I believe that the Australian Ballet is equal to anything I have seen and in some cases better than. I am a strong supporter of our ballet dancers - if we want the best we have to support them to continue to be the best.

Some of the best Ballet in the World, mostly danced beautifully and hardly a "thump" on landing. I prefer the classic pieces, but all are very well done.
