When love waltzes in... (9)

Tragic or happy, passionate or cold-headed, reciprocal or unrequited, love stories have stood the test of time. Whether they are inspired by folklore, mythology, History, literature, ballet has been a privileged medium of telling these wondrous tales of heroes and heroines who love and tear each other apart.

Enjoy these beloved ballets in a week revolving around International Kissing Day, the perfect opportunity to rediscover Angelin Preljocaj’s Le Parc, classics with the Royal Ballet and Paris Opera, as well as a series of stellar new releases with the Australian Ballet!
