Monday Vernissage 2016

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; usually a private ‘promenade’ before the formal opening.


Join our celebrity guest speakers as they take you on a promenade through the finer points of the ballet world.


$25 per person/ $20 for subscribers and students. Includes a glass of bubbly on arrival.


To book call WAB direct on (08) 9214 0707.

Revealing the Royal


Monday 10 October 2016 – 7pm


The Royal Opera House Covent Garden invokes magical experiences, glittering performances and royalty – you know you’ve made it when you’ve ‘played the Garden’! But backstage at the Garden is like any other theatre: grease paint, sweat, tears, heightened emotions… or is it? Go backstage with Barry Hudson, as he provides a fascinating insight into this most majestic of all theatres.


Barry is WAB’s new Technical Director. He has a career in theatre spanning 30 years, including 20 years in technical leadership roles at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and more recently, as Head of Stage and Operations for the Royal Opera House Oman.


Open Fridays


Throughout the year WAB opens its doors and invites you into the studio to watch our dancers take their morning class. For only $10 you can see our stars up close and be inspired by their dedication and hard work. It’s an intimate, inspiring and affordable experience for all. Open Fridays run from 10.00-11.30am unless otherwise specified.
