Event Description

The Australian Ballet’s Regional Tour comes to Frankston with a special gala performance to celebrate 40 years of spreading the magic of dance across the nation.

This dazzling program features key works from four decades of touring, including excerpts from two of the world’s most loved ballets, The Sleeping Beauty and Don Quixote, and two rarely seen ballets, Spring Waters and Poems.

A highlight of this program is Swan Lake Variations, a never-before-seen piece choreographed by former Artistic Director David McAllister. It’s a gift to audiences from this beloved luminary and a tribute to the beauty of Tchaikovsky.

Join the celebration in Frankston!
