Paris Opera Ballet performing in Sydney, June 2007

7 posts in this topic

"The Sydney Morning Herald" reports that the Paris Opera Ballet will be performing in Sydney for two weeks in June 2007:

Paris ballet poised and pointed for Opera House debut

This was also mentioned in the current, August/September 2006 issue of "Dance Australia", on page 16.

They'll be doing a gala at the Sydney Opera House, and then a season of "Jewels" and Nureyev's "Swan Lake" in Sydney's Capitol Theatre. Unfortunately, they won't be performing in any of the other capital cities. Dance Australia says that "Melbourne's State Theatre is not available at (the) time".

If anyone can confirm actual performance dates, and when and where tickets go on sale, please let us know. I need to book some annual leave to fly up there. :P

Swan Lake and Jewels went on sale on the Internet about four hours ago, but you seem to need some sort of presale code. The general sale starts 9am on the 5th of December.

Ticketmaster

Edit: Search for "capitol" and then choose "Capitol Theatre, Haymarket". It's a few pages into the search results.

No idea about the gala, yet.

POB have finally announced the details of the gala. I just received an email about it. The details are here:

Paris Opera Ballet - Grand Gala

Wednesday 13th of June 2007, 19:30 at the Sydney Opera House.

PROGRAM:

Paquita (after Marius Petipa): Grand Pas

Swan Lake (Rudolf Nureyev after Marius Petipa): Pas de trios, Swan Lake Act III

La Dame aux camélias (John Neumeier): Pas de deux

INTERVAL

The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude (William Forsythe)

Sonatine (George Balanchine)

Three-Cornered Hat (Le Tricorne) (Leonide Massine): Miller’s Dance, solo

L’Arlésienne (Roland Petit): Pas de deux

Tickets are on sale on the 2nd of April at 9am from the Sydney Opera House website

Be warned, the tickets are pretty expensive. An A-reserve seat will set you back as much as a full subscription to The Australian Ballet company's 2007 season.
