The Australian Ballet Returns to Royal Opera House, London After 35 years.

The Australian Ballet has announced that the company will tour to the Royal Opera House in London in August 2023 as part of the company’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

It will be The Australian Ballet’s first appearance on the Royal Opera House stage in 35 years since it presented The Sleeping Beauty in 1988 and will be the first international tour for The Australian Ballet under the leadership of Artistic Director David Hallberg. It will see the company perform Kunstkamer - one of the most ambitious contemporary dance productions ever to appear as part of its repertoire. Complementing Kunstkamer will be a one performance only 60th Anniversary Celebration showcasing The Australian Ballet in some of its signature repertoire.

The touring party will be the largest one TAB has sent overseas, made up of more than 100 dancers, musicians, wardrobe, medical, technical, production and support staff. The staging and costumes will fill three shipping containers.

Federal Arts Minister The Hon. Tony Burke said: “As Australia’s national ballet company, The Australian Ballet has a long history of international touring that has taken the company to 37 countries and 88 cities since it was founded in 1962. This tour to London once again presents opportunities to showcase The Australian Ballet’s position as a great cultural ambassador for Australia, highlighting the skill and talent of Australian artists and creative talent.”
