Where Melbourne - - Where Now Live On Stage -

The Aus­tralian Con­ser­va­toire of Bal­let (ACB) is pre­sent­ing Tchaikovsky’s pop­u­lar bal­let “Swan Lake” at Arts Cen­tre Mel­bourne. The pro­duc­tion, chore­ographed by for­mer Aus­tralian Bal­let Prin­ci­pal Artist Chris­tine Walsh, fea­tures 70 ACB dancers to­gether with in­ter­na­tional guest artists. Tchaikovsky’s haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful full-length score is be­ing played by the 65 mu­si­cians of the ACB Orches­tra led by the renowned con­duc­tor Peter Bandy. The com­pany an­nu­ally per­forms full-length clas­si­cal bal­lets at Arts Cen­tre Mel­bourne. It is the only pri­vate bal­let school in Aus­tralia to per­form such pro­duc­tions on a yearly ba­sis with its own full-scale orches­tra. Es­tab­lished in 1991 by Walsh and Ri­cardo Ella, ACB has de­vel­oped an ex­cel­lent rep­u­ta­tion for strong bal­let train­ing. ACB grad­u­ate stu­dents have been, or are cur­rently, em­ployed around the world in in­ter­na­tional bal­let and dance com­pa­nies.
