Popular demand for Ballet at the Quarry leads to extra performance added.
After a sell out opening weekend, and with very limited options for the remainder of the season, West Australian Ballet has added an additional show to Ballet at the Quarry. The extra performance will be added for Tuesday 25 February and go on sale from today, making the season now 17 performances long. The programme, headlined by Edward Clug’s Radio and Juliet with music by Radiohead, has proved to be the company’s most popular at the Quarry Amphitheatre to date.
Ballet at the Quarry runs until 1 March.
