The ravishing musical An American in Paris comes to QPAC for its keenly-awaited Australian premiere in January 2022.
Hailed as a tour de force for its inventive choreography, the four-time Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical tells the entrancing story of a young American soldier and a beautiful French girl, set against the iconic backdrop of the most romantic city in the world.
This buoyant, beautiful and breathtaking musical stars the charismatic Broadway and West End leads Robbie Fairchild and Leanne Cope, reprising their show-stopping turns as the American GI Jerry Mulligan and the young Parisian dancer Lise. The production features two of Australia’s leading lights, Cameron Holmes and Dimity Azoury who will alternate in the lead roles, supported by an outstanding Australian cast and ensemble drawn from the worlds of ballet and musical theatre.
Inspired by the Academy Award®-winning MGM film, acclaimed director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings the enchantment and magic of Paris alive on stage with popular songs by George and Ira Gershwin, including “I Got Rhythm”, “But Not For Me”, “’S Wonderful” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”.
This rhapsodic combination of classic score, timeless love story, exuberant dance and sumptuous design has captivated audiences and critics alike, with The Wall Street Journal declaring it “a masterpiece!”
Be among the first to see this stunning musical in a ground-breaking collaboration between The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment.
