SPARTACUS

Moscow's mighty Bolshoi Ballet returns to Australia with its grandiose epic, Spartacus.

With its famous Khachaturyan score, Spartacus is the dramatic story of the leader of a band of slaves uprising against cruel Roman rule and has long been considered the company’s signature ballet.

JEWELS

Jewels is a three-act ballet choreographed by George Balanchine and inspired by the beauty and artistry of the gem stones Balanchine observed in the stores of New York jewellers Van Cleef & Arpels.

Using music from different composers and incorporating different musical and balletic styles, Jewels celebrates the three cities and dance schools which forged the aesthetic and style of the esteemed choreographer.
