The Regional Tour

40th Anniversary Gala

CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF REGIONAL TOURING

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We regret to announce that due to the current COVID-19 lockdowns and interstate border closures, the company has cancelled the 2021 Regional Tour. The restrictions currently in place mean that touring and performing over the next two weeks will not be possible. The Youth Masterclasses and the free Class on Tour events have also been cancelled.

We are extremely disappointed we are unable to bring our 40th anniversary gala to our much-loved regional audiences. The Regional Tour is a highlight of our annual calendar, the company has been preparing this production for many months and the touring staff and dancers were only days away from hitting the road to bring the joy of dance to our loyal regional audiences.

We look forward to returning to Regional Touring next year and thank all our ticket holders for supporting The Australian Ballet during this challenging time. All ticket holders will be contacted about their tickets by the venue and provided a refund. If you purchased a Youth Masterclass ticket, you will receive an automatic refund from The Australian Ballet.
