Ballet may be codified, but to stay alive choreographers must push boundaries. Aspen Santa Fe Ballet made that point clear Saturday night at the Winspear Opera House, opening the dance season for TITAS. The company eschewed not only toe shoes, tutus, tiaras and tours en l’air, but more radically, grace.

The Australian Ballet 2012 Launch

The Australian Ballet launched a blockbuster program to celebrate its 2012 season, which also marks its 50th anniversary. They will present new works by three of Australia’s most acclaimed choreographers—Graeme Murphy, Gideon Obarzanek and Stephen Page—and a new production of its inaugural ballet, Swan Lake.

It has been 50 years since the sparkling gem of grace and culture began entertaining Australian audiences with plies and pointe shoes, and if the 2012 season launch is anything to go by, The Australian Ballet has no plans of slowing down.

In celebrating their golden anniversary, The Australian Ballet is poised to present an exciting new season of contemporary pieces while honoring the company’s rich history through the worlds’ most loved traditional ballets.via The Australian Ballet 2012 Launch.
