Fabulous experience for those who understand ballet class and also for those who have never seen what happens in a ballet class. Great explanations by Fiona Tonkin as to what was happening. Well done Australian Ballet for offering this to the public.

A feast for the senses! There were fantastical projections including some ones for giggles for interval. Puppetry, seamless seat changes and en pointe dancing. A great night out.
