The Australian Ballet Will Take An American In Paris on Tour in 2022
A Breath Taking New Musical Collaboration for Australian Ballet
The Australian Ballet are co-producing, alongside GWB Entertainment, the Broadway sensation An American in Paris in Australia in 2022 in a first-of-its-kind partnership.
An American in Paris is directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner and acclaimed international contemporary ballet choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. Captivating audiences and critics alike, the production has garnered many accolades including twelve Tony Award nominations, winning the 2015 Tony Award for Best Choreography among other prestigious production awards.
Touring to five cities across Australia in 2022 — Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney — this production will feature some of The Australian Ballet dancers in the cast. The full cast announcement will be made in the coming weeks.
Hailed as a tour de force for its stunning choreography, the four-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical tells the entrancing story of a young American soldier and a beautiful French girl, set against the iconic backdrop of the most romantic city in the world.
Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, acclaimed director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings the enchantment and magic of Paris to buoyant life with popular songs by George and Ira Gershwin, including I Got Rhythm, S Wonderful, But Not For Me and They Can’t Take That Away From Me.
This rhapsodic combination of classic score, timeless love story, exuberant dance and sumptuous design has captivated audiences and critics alike, with The Wall Street Journal declaring it “a masterpiece!”
Don’t miss this breath-taking musical in a ground-breaking collaboration between The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment.
