The Australian Ballet - Infinity

What a fabulous start to the Australian Ballet's 50th anniversary year - a triple bill of all new Australian work. Opening night was really satisfying, not necessarily perfect, but so exciting to see relevant Australian work performed.

My review is in The Age, but you can also check Jordan Beth Vincent's excellent, unrestrained commentary on her new blog: Talking Pointes, or for pictures, try The Australian Ballet's facebook page or this slideshow on The Age website.

Infinity - featuring new choreography by Graeme Murphy, Gideon Obarzanek and Stephen Page. Melbourne Season runs until March 6 at the State Theatre. Definitely worth a look, for all dance fans.

    You must be easily pleased.Oberzanek's parody of Swan Lake was, quite frankly, an insult to ballet. He has been out of ballet for 20 years and turns up in the AB's 50th Celebrations.
    The first two pieces were ballet popcorn.
