Our free cinema-quality digital season brings our full-length performances to Australians at home.
Our gift to you.
Ballet is powerful magic. It can draw you out of your lounge room and into forests and castles and starry skies. It can make you forget your worries and feel the freedom and exhilaration of unbridled leaps and lifts. Throughout its centuries of history, ballet has always offered the most wonderful escape from troubled times, and even though our theatres are closed, we want to offer you that gift.
Our new At Home with Ballet TV digital season will beam our premium-quality productions right to your couch for free. We’ve hand-picked a selection of our most beloved and inspiring ballets, and each will have a limited two-week season on our streaming platform, Ballet TV. Absolutely free!
We’re all at home – but we’re all together. And together, we’ll dance our way through.
Our April - May schedule is available below.
PAQUITA | LA SYLPHIDE
AVAILABLE FROM THURSDAY 28 MAY, 5PM AEST
In 1832, Marie Taglioni drifted onto the Paris Opera’s stage in La Sylphide – and Romance was born. La Sylphide revolutionised ballet, putting women en pointe and giving audiences their first glimpse of the Romantic ballerina – weightless in a froth of gauze, unattainable and unearthly.
This quintessential Romantic work will be paired with Petipa’s glittering party piece Paquita, a chance for our dancers to display their sparkling technique.
Starring Leanne Stojmenov as the Sylph and Daniel Gaudiello as James, these two productions were filmed at the Sydney Opera House with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.WATCH NOW Artists of The Australian Ballet. Photography by Lynette Wills

We look forward to returning to the stage, in great spirits and in great shape. But we can’t do it without you. With no ticket sales, which form the majority of our income, we are now facing the most critical challenge in our 58-year history. If you are able to, please consider making a donation to help us keep the company afloat during the coming months. Your generous support will help us reach our 60th birthday and keep world-class ballet in Australia for generations to come.
