Owner description: The Australian Ballet is one of the world's leading ballet companies, and has been delivering extraordinary performances for over 50 years. A commitment to excellence, a spirited attack and a willingness to take risks have defined the company from its earliest days, both onstage and off. As well as 70 acclaimed dancers, the company employs leaders in injury prevention, marketing, music, digital and education to present upwards of 250 shows and 1000 audience-engagement events each year. A network of elite artisans work tirelessly behind the scenes to create the splendour you see on stage; our costumes are made with the care given to couture. Moving effortlessly between the great classical ballets and new contemporary commissions, the company has a unique Australian beauty, powered by athleticism. As it embarks on a new five-year strategic plan, The Australian Ballet is poised to reach more audiences than ever before, both at home and overseas.

Absolutely beautiful. I found that there were a lot of people there which is always nice but it was overcrowded.

“World class ballet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I have been a season subscriber for more years than I care to remember and can only say that we are so lucky to have here in Melbourne one of the best ballet companies in the world. The standard of dancing can't be faulted and it is a real joy to see such talent.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I saw their production of 'Don Quixote" and it was brilliant. The scenery and costumes were magnificent and the dancing - well, it was superb. They are a world class company and as good as any I have seen on the major stages of the world. Congratulations!
