Ballet Under The Stars

The Australian Ballet comes to Lardner Park

The Australian Ballet’s free annual outdoor community program, Ballet Under The Stars, is coming to regional Victoria for the first time on Saturday 26th October 2019 and will be exclusively staged at Lardner Park.

Ballet Under the Stars has become a highlight in The Australian Ballet’s annual performance calendar and gives new audiences a rare opportunity to enjoy a world class, high-quality arts experience.

The free family-friendly program was first launched in Melbourne, the home of The Australian Ballet, in 1966 and has since grown into a proud tradition performing in Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin and Canberra.

The event, which was last presented in Melbourne in 2014, is expected to draw ballet fans from Victoria and beyond, catering for seasoned ballet aficionados, but also new audiences who otherwise may not have the opportunity, means or access to attend ballet in a traditional theatre setting.

The program is proudly being supported by the Victorian Government’s $20 million Regional Events Fund which helps regional communities to attract and stage major events which drive visitation and boost the economy.

This year The Australian Ballet will be performing a full-length production of the much loved classic Giselle.  First love, betrayal, heartache and forgiveness…. Giselle is a timeless love story with a supernatural edge.

Bring your family and friends, pre-order your Taste of Gippsland Gourmet Hamper, and enjoy the beautiful surrounds whilst experiencing breathtaking dancing and flowing white tutus.
