Monday Vernissage

Join our celebrity guest speakers as they take you on a promenade through the finer points of the ballet world. The term ‘vernissage’ comes from the French word ‘varnishing’ (putting the finishing touches on a painting) and is used for a preview of an art exhibition, which may be a private ‘promenade’ before the formal opening.


$25 per person/ $20 for subscribers and students, and includes a glass of bubbly on arrival. Bookings: (08) 9214 0707 or for more information.
