Presented by: The Australian Ballet

In an entrancing double bill that encompasses varying styles of dance, The Australian Ballet are delighted to be presenting Études, a beloved classic that shows you the complexity of ballet technique, alongside a spectacular new contemporary commission, Circle Electric by Stephanie Lake. These two works demonstrate the preparation and dedication of ballet dancers as they advance from the studio to the stage in a thrilling display of talent and emotion.


Harald Lander

Choreographed by Harald Lander in 1948 for the Royal Danish Ballet, this one-act ballet is set to piano studies by Carl Czerny, arranged by Knudåge Riisager. Emulating the ballet studio experience, the dancers perform precise exercises at the barre, which become more expansive as they move into the centre, and develop into a grand finale of full-velocity movement in perfect synchronisation. Complemented by spectacular new costumes from Lise Lander, Études will transform you to the inner world of the dance studio with its beauty, grace and immaculate movement.

Circle Electric

Stephanie Lake

Using the full force of The Australian Ballet's dancers, Circle Electric starts as a microscopic investigation of the intricate and the intimate, ultimately expanding to encompass a telescopic view of humanity.

Grappling with the search for meaning, Stephanie Lake in her first full length commission for The Australian Ballet, looks at a fundamental paradox of our existence – how we can be both utterly insignificant and profoundly important at the same time.
