I contacted the Australian Ballet to get more information and received this email response:

Thank you for your interest in the Australian Ballet for 2011. At this point we still do not have the direct link to where the live stream will be available. Once we do have that link, it will be available on our website. I will send it through to you as well, once we know the details. Thank you again, and I apologise for the delay in response.

As soon as I receive more information, I will post it here for others.
