The Screen Guide

After 70 years the thrill and glamour of the fabulous Ballets Russes is still as vibrant as ever, and in homage to their brilliance, The Australian Ballet is re-staging one of their greatest productions, The Firebird. This is the behind the scenes story of that recreation, an historical look at the Ballets Russes 1930s tours of Australia and a celebration of how this thrilling dance company changed our cultural landscape forever. Part contemporary performance, part history, THE BALLET RUSSES IN AUSTRALIA tells the story of this extraordinary company and its profound and lasting effect on Australian culture.
