The Australian Ballet's Paquita is a short work which features excerpts from Marius Petipa's original two-act ballet. A quintessential ballet with a distinct Spanish flavour, Paquita is a glittering showcase of classical technique, dazzling tutus, delicate footwork and non-stop virtuosic turns. This is a chance for our dancers to display their sparkling technique in a program that is pure dance.
Paquita was filmed in 2013 at the Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.
