This performance is the culmination of a very full and rewarding year for The Australian Ballet School. The mixed program is designed to delight, and provide all of our young talent with the opportunity to shine. Our beautiful Butterfly is a fitting finale to 2022; the butterfly is the perfect metaphor to be explored and performed by our transforming young artists-in-training.
Congratulations to every one of our beautiful students and teachers for working so hard, and bringing their passion for dance to the School every day. Special thanks to alumnus and artist of The Australian Ballet, Hugo Dumapit, for stepping into the role of Jack Butterfly at late notice. My thanks also to David Hallberg and The Australian Ballet for supporting Hugo’s involvement.
– Lisa Pavane, Director of The Australian Ballet School
