The Australian Ballet Celebrate A Visionary

Australian Ballet Company - Nijinsky - Isobelle Dashwood, Drew Henritch, Coco Mathieson | Habitus Living

The Australian Ballet is celebrating the life and work of visionary dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. The company kicked off their 2016 Nijinsky season in style before an intimate party for the arts and design community.

Choreographed by John Neumeier, Nijinsky tells the story of legendary dancer and director Vaslav Nijinsky and his rise and fall through the world of ballet.

The ballet is a tour de force for company, with a special focus on the male dancers, who are given the opportunity to evoke Nijinsky’s distinctive and challenging modernist style amidst sets and costumes inspired by the exotic glamour of the Ballets Russes.

Running at the Sydney Opera House until November 28, the ballet kicked off the Sydney run of Nijinsky with an intimate gathering of some of Sydney’s finest in dance, art, design and culture.
