The Evening's Program


Glittering excerpts from our most iconic classical, neo-classical and contemporary works including Don Quixote, Le Corsaire, The Great Gatsby, Takuto, Radio & Juliet plus many other wonderful surprises will be stunningly showcased. Designed for ballet lovers of all ages, join us for an emotional ride down memory lane as our dancers exude their passion for this exquisite art-form and Company.

"After eight years at the helm of West Australian Ballet and all the successes we’ve been through...

I thought the right time had come to bring back some of these highlights to our Perth audiences in a Gala performance.

Because this Gala will showcase all styles of dancing – it is a great way to bring everyone together at once – whether you like classical ballet or prefer contemporary dance – there's something for everyone...

It's also the perfect way to end the year (especially this one). It's a rare opportunity to dress up, have a lovely dinner before the show and enjoy world-class dance with friends and family right here in Perth."
