New Romantics

Last night I had the good fortune to see the dress rehearsal of 'New Romantics' - the Australian Ballet's latest production. This amazing triplet has ballets by two modern choreographers - Australian Stephen Baynes - 'Constant Variants', and New Yorker Christopher Wheeldon - After The Rain', preceded by the incomparable George Balanchine's Apollo.
What a fabulous evening and we even had the good fortune to see Steven Heathcote in what is to be his last principal role for the Australian Ballet.
In the words of Molly Meldrum...'Do yourself a favour'
Or to bastardise Shakespeare...'Get thee to the ballet'
