Tuesday 23rd August 2011

The Australian Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet – premiering in Melbourne next month.  Pictured above, dancers Kevin Jackson and Madeleine Eastoe, in costumes by Akira Isogawa.  Photos by Georges Antoni.

It’s no secret I have a long-standing crush on The Australian Ballet – they’re such an inspiring and innovative company, and have been fantastic supporters of TDF over the last few years.  We do love to reciprocate whenever we can – especially when there’s a generous giveaway on offer!

Next month The Australian Ballet launch a highly anticipated new show – Romeo & Juliet!  This brand new performance is brought to life by acclaimed choreographer Graeme Murphy – and of course is full of all the fiery passion and romance you can expect from the greatest love story ever told!  The clincher for me though, is one particularly special collaboration – Akira Isogawa has designed all the costumes!  *Swoon!*

Luckily for you guys, the lovely Australian Ballet marketing team have generously offered a double-pass giveaway for one lucky Design Files reader! You can win a double-pass to the Charity Preview Performance of Romeo & Juliet in Melbourne on September 12th. This prize is valued at $250.00.  TO ENTER, please leave a comment on this post today before 10.00pm – A winner will be selected at random and notified by email tomorrow.    Please note these tickets are for September 12th in Melbourne only – please enter only if you’re free to attend that evening!

HUGE thanks to The Australian Ballet team for another wonderful giveaway!

Romeo & Juliet is showing in Melbourne throughout September and in Sydney in December.  For more info, performance dates and tickets visit The Australian Ballet website.

Ps. Don’t forget about the Behind Ballet blog!  I know I often bang on about it, but that’s because it is TRULY so awesome.  There is much Romeo & Juliet behind-the-scenes goodness to uncover… do pop by and have a look.

Akira Isogawa lends his expertise to The Australian Ballet costume department – these shots by Lynette Wills.

    The first ballet I saw was Swan Lake by the Australian Ballet Company. I instantly fell in love – with ALL of them, it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I went with my daughter who was then nine years old and she still talks about it. She managed to get Adam Bull’s autograph when he was lining up for a coffee outside the Arts Centre after the show. He was lovely to my daughter and asked if she’d noticed when he got his foot caught in his partner’s dress and nearly fell over!
