Murphy

Date: 24 Mar 2018

The Australian Ballet opens its 2018 Sydney season with Murphy, a deep dive into the work of choreographer Graeme Murphy, who began his career as a dancer with The Australian Ballet in 1968.

That 50-year dance milestone will be honoured with a restaging of his dazzling ballet Firebird, and a program of the greatest hits he created for The Australian Ballet and the Sydney Dance Company, which he oversaw as Artistic Director or 30 years.

“Graeme has had a huge impact on dance in Australia,” says current Artistic Director David McAllister. “This program will be like a staged version of looking back at his career … like a mix-tape with all his best songs on it.”
