Archè is an original ballet based on the classic Swan Lake and explores much of the original narrative and embraces some of the famous classical repertoire.
Saturday 29 April 8pm
Melbourne Ballet Company Director Simon Hoy has structured this work around his unique choreographic style and has developed a score including music by Tchaikovsky, Einaudi, Morricone, and Elgar.
Archè premiered in Melbourne in 2015 and toured nationally and internationally in 2016 and was sold-out in most venues across the tour. This emotionally charged production has received critical acclaim and is suitable for audience everywhere.
