Australian Ballet – The Merry Widow – Sydney

★★★★✰   The Merry Widow is Robert Helpmann’s great gift to the Australian Ballet. It premiered in November 1975 and has been staged more than 400 times since.

Royal Ballet – Woolf Works – Brisbane

★★★★✰   For the Royal Ballet, there could not have been a better start to their Australian tour than Ferri’s performance as Clarissa Dalloway in the first act of Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works.

Australian Ballet – Manon (Cojocaru/Kobborg ) – Sydney

The presence of Cojocaru and Kobborg in Manon, apart from giving such pleasure in itself, lifted the Australian Ballet’s production and took it to a different level. And bouquets to Steven Heathcote for a remarkable performance as well.
